Tickets for Kids Charities has partnered with Prime Stage Theatre for many years on a program called Performance 360: A Celebration of Reading. This program allows in-need and at-risk teens served by TFK to have a unique interactive experience that combines literature and performing arts. The benefits of this program go far beyond the time spent watching the wonderful performance each year at the New Hazlett Theater. We are deeply grateful to Wayne Brinda and his talented team for including TFK kids in their world of creativity & joy!

Prime Stage is the only theatre in Southwestern PA that effectively blends its artistic and educational missions to address adolescent literacy. The high quality of its productions along with the high quality of its educational programs contribute to the company's success. Also, while some national theatres do occasional programs for teens, Prime Stage is fully committed with all its productions and programs to satisfy the interests of teens with its Teen Advisory Board and other programs. The company also helps teachers motivate and improve the reading skills of underserved middle and high school students. This company is truly a cultural and educational asset.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

productions and in classrooms

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how it consistently meets its mission.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, energetic, and very knowlegeable about the field and working with adolescents.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach more young people and motivate them to read more books and see more theatre.
