Since 2006, Prime Stage and Tickets for Kids® Charities have partnered to present Performance 360: Celebration of Reading, a one-of-a-kind program that integrates literature, theater and visual arts. Each year, more than 300 young people who are served by Tickets for Kids prepare for the performance by reading the source material and creating an original work of art. On performance night, students have the opportunity to discuss the play with the cast and share their creative work, which is displayed in the theatre lobby.
Past performances include The Giver, The Westing Game, Romeo and Juliet, and A Wrinkle in Time.
This year’s program takes place on Thursday, May 16th and features the regional premiere of Walk Two Moons, based on the Newbery Award-winning novel by Sharon Creech. Tickets for Kids® Charities is generously sponsored for Performance 360: Celebration of Reading by PNC Foundation.
