Texas Performing Arts Student Ticket Fund
Who We Are
Texas Performing Arts presents unforgettable live performances, provides real-world work and educational experiences for students, and remains a unique gathering place for our community.
From presenting the Austin premiers of Broadway hits like Hamilton and The Lion King, to nationally renowned artists like Bob Dylan and Dance Theatre of Harlem, Texas Performing Arts connects people with performance.
With your support, we create engaging and transformative opportunities for audiences of all ages to experience the performing arts. Through new work development, youth engagement programs, and student ticketing, your gifts expand the reach of the performing arts in the Austin community.
What We’re Fundraising For
At Texas Performing Arts, we’re committed to providing access to incredible arts experiences for young people, ages pre-K through college, and you can be part of it with a gift to our Student Ticket Fund.
Gifts of all sizes can make a difference:
- $10 = 1 ticket for a student to attend a performance
- $40 = 4 tickets for 4 students to attend a show
- $120 = Artist honorarium to support one masterclass
- $200 = Bus transportation for one classroom of students to attend a performance at Bass Concert Hall
As students return to school, your support will help Texas Performing Arts serve 20,000 elementary, middle school, high school, and university students from over 30 Austin-area schools.
Your gift to the Student Ticket Fund will work to ensure students are also heading back to the theater; student Allyson Chu, who attended last season’s performance of Hamilton, says…
“The last song of Hamilton, ‘Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Stories,’ I really liked that song. It made me think a lot about what I am doing in my life. How am I impacting the world so that one day I will be remembered as somebody?”
- Allyson Chu, sophomore at McNeil High School, student participant in Texas Performing Arts’ Broadway for Youth program
Student ticketing programs, like Texas Performing Arts’ Broadway for Youth, grow the hearts and minds of students, but we cannot do it alone.
The performing arts create more pathways for learning, more opportunities to expand imaginations, and more space for students of all ages in our community to develop a voice of their own.
Whether you make a gift of $10, $40, $200, or more, your support will provide a real-life experience full of wonder and artistry that will reverberate in the life of a young person for years to come.
Your support will help build a bright future for students, like Allyson and thousands more, to experience the inspirational power of the performing arts – many for the first time.
It only takes one performing arts experience and one gift to the Student Ticket Fund to transform young hearts and minds.
Your generosity creates more opportunities and a future where artistry of the highest caliber is accessible to Austin-area students of all ages. Together you can make a difference.
