Actors Theatre of Louisville is proud to announce the extension of their Community Ticket Grant program through the 41st Humana Festival of New American Plays, running March 1 through April 9, 2017. In serving their core mission and values, the Community Ticket Grant program extends the opportunity to experience Actors Theatre’s robust programming to Louisville and Southern Indiana community groups, who for various reasons may not have the resources to attend a performance on their own.

With an inaugural launch this past June for the 2016-2017 Season, the new city-wide initiative has already seen an immense reach into the community. To-date, the program has served 31 local charitable organizations by providing more than 880 complimentary tickets to various Opening Night performances throughout the season. “The overwhelming amount of positive feedback we have received has underscored the importance of this program,” said Melissa Hines, Marketing Manager. “We are incredibly honored to serve our community in this way, and are excited to introduce these world-premiere works in the Humana Festival to audiences across the region.”

Qualifying community groups and 501(c)(3) charities serving individuals in the greater Louisville and Southern Indiana area are welcome to apply to receive complimentary tickets to a selection of  Opening Night performances during the 41st Humana Festival of New American Plays. Each group may apply for up to two Festival productions with ticket quantities ranging from a minimum of 10 tickets up to a maximum of 150 tickets. The selected groups will be awarded tickets to one of their two production choices. Groups will work with Melissa Hines, Marketing Manager, and members of the Actors Theatre Box Office to coordinate attendance details and seating selection for their group members.

Deadline to submit applications for the 41st Humana Festival is February 3, 2017. The online application form, as well as additional information regarding play descriptions, content advisories, age appropriateness, and program rules and restrictions can be found at actorstheatre.org/community-ticket-grant. Specific questions may be directed to Melissa Hines, Marketing Manager, at mhines@actorstheatre.org or 502.584.1265 x3140.
