Starlight’s Community Tickets program is now accepting applications for the 2021 Broadway season. Nonprofit organizations wishing to participate must apply by May 28.
Starlight strives to provide accessible arts experiences to as many Kansas Citians as possible. The Community Tickets program was developed to provide tickets to organizations serving individuals who otherwise may not be afforded the opportunity to experience professional theatre. This program serves numerous community partners, including those that dedicate resources and services to underprivileged and at-risk youth, individuals who are medically dependent or disabled, and low-income senior citizens.
“As an important component of how Starlight delivers on its mission to provide accessible live entertainment for all audiences, the Community Tickets program has a long history of offering free access to thousands of community members every season,” said Alex Jones, Starlight’s Vice President of Community Engagement. “The nonprofit organizations that utilize community tickets are doing incredible work in the Kansas City region, and it is a privilege to partner with them so that their clients have the ability to experience the thrill of live theatre,” Jones added.
Since opening our doors in 1950, the Community Tickets program has involved over 450 organizations and their clients to give the opportunity of enjoying live theatre with free tickets to Broadway musicals. Each night of our summer Broadway series, Starlight donates 364 free tickets to nonprofits. Starlight’s Community Tickets program has served organizations diverse in size and services, ranging anywhere from focused behavioral health service to community centers.
