Providing Access to the Arts for All

Act One’s programs provide arts experiences to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access the arts through field trips for students from Title 1 schools and the Act One Culture Pass.

Quotation Mark

“This type of experience benefits all of our students because this is likely their only opportunity thus far in life to see this type of performance. With close to 100% of our students considered low-socioeconomic status, this is a very unique and rewarding experience for them!”
