Education & Community Programs > Overview
Investing in meaningful experiences for our community and future generations of performing artists
STG’s Education and Community Programs Department serves over 56,000 Pacific Northwest residents each season. These programs uplift historically under-represented communities, and provide authentic opportunities to engage deeply with the artists and ideas of our times.
In the 2018-2019 season, our vision was expressed through 964 individual engagements including 750 free events and over 14,000 free or reduced cost tickets. We launched our first ever sensory-friendly performance of The Lion King and a digital education program with Dear Evan Hansen as well as expanded upon existing educational and community programs such as STG’s Dance for PD® , AileyCamp, Disney Musicals in Schools as well as Our Theatre Access Program provided 14,079 free or reduced tickets
