Playhouse Square believes that exposure to the arts changes lives; with a commitment of a $1 million to arts education each year, Playhouse Square provides a variety of free and low-cost programming that engages more than 250,000 people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to become lifelong learners.

Center Stage Will Benefit the Following Programs

Sensory-friendly Programming

Sensory-friendly Programming increases access and inclusion for children and families affected by autism spectrum disorders and other sensory, social and cognitive challenges. Seeing the joy and laughter emanating from these growing audiences makes it clear why it is vitally important that children affected by developmental challenges be given the same opportunities that their peers receive

Subsidy Programs

Subsidy Programs offer schools and low-income students affordable ticket prices and transportation and provides the kind of arts access more prosperous districts might enjoy.
