Community Ticket Grant program connects local nonprofits with Actors Theatre of Louisville


Actors Theatre of Louisville has announced the return of the popular Community Ticket Grant program for the 2019–20 Season, sponsored in part by Brown-Forman.

This local initiative extends the opportunity to experience Actors Theatre’s vibrant programming to any Louisville and Southern Indiana community groups and 501(c)(3) organizations that are interested in sharing theatrical experiences with their constituents.

Last season, the Community Ticket Grant program served 43 area charities, translating into theatrical experiences for about 1,400 local residents.

Melissa Hines, Actors Theatre Marketing Manager, is looking forward to the Community Ticket’s fourth season. “We are working hard to anticipate and remove barriers to artistic programming, especially for our neighbors,” she said. “Past participants have shared the positive impact on their members and constituents. It goes to show that arts experiences really are the gift that keeps on giving.”

Qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations and community groups serving individuals in the greater Louisville and Southern Indiana area are invited to apply to receive complimentary tickets to select performance of Actors Theatre’s 2019–20 Season. The selected groups will be awarded tickets to one of their three production choices. Groups will work with the Actors Theatre Marketing Department and Box Office to coordinate attendance details and seating selection for their group members.

Deadline to submit applications is Aug. 9. To apply, visit ActorsTheatre.org/CTG. Direct questions to Melissa Hines, Marketing Manager, at mhines@actorstheatre.org or (502) 584-1265, ext. 3140.
