Field Trips for Title 1 Schools

Registration for the 2019-20 school year is now open.



Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Metropolitan Phoenix and Metropolitan Tucson as well as nearby areas that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted bus services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.

In the 2018-19 school year, Act One brought more than 43,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on more than 88 performance field trips and nearly 170 museum field trips in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.

Quotation Mark

“Act One has big muscles. They pull open Arizona’s theater and museum doors extra-wide for nearly 50,000 of Arizona’s underprivileged youth a year — eliminating financial and operational barriers — helping them have an opportunity to make meaningful memories and experience new emotions through the language of dance and color on the professional stage.  There isn’t a bow big enough put around the gift that Act One gives our community each year.”

— Jennifer Woods, ON Media Marketing & Communications Manager



Students attended Act One field trips last year

Thanks to the generosity of donors, Act One was able to bring 16% more students on arts field trips in 2018-19 than the prior year. We will have capacity to bring more than 50,000 students in 2019-20.
