Asolo Rep Provides Free and Discounted Tickets for Local Youth and Families

Arts & Culture

Throughout Asolo Rep's critically acclaimed run of  The Sound of Music, the theatre has provided free and discounted tickets for more than 1,200 area youth and families. This initiative supports the institution's belief that it is crucial for the next generation to experience the magic of live theatre at a young age. The theatre hosted a sold-out student matinee on December 4 for more than 500 students (grades 8 - 12) from schools in Sarasota and Manatee County. As part of the program, Asolo Rep Education & Engagement department provided educational materials (curriculum, interactive activities, and discussion questions) to connect the show onstage to the lives and learning of students. The theatre also provided an additional 200 discounted tickets for students from other schools for performances throughout the run. 

More than 100 families (500+ patrons) attended Family Day at The Sound of Music on Saturday, December 14. Attendees received discounted tickets and also engaged in pre-show interactive activities, hosted by arts partners Embracing Our Differences, The Ringling and The Sarasota Opera, including an opera singing lesson, a paper collage craft, an inside look at the real von Trapp family and more.

Asolo Rep's Education & Engagement department is in the process of expanding its offerings. Visit https://www.asolorep.org/engage-learn to stay up to date.  The Sound of Music runs through December 28. For tickets and information, visit www.asolorep.org.
