It’s not uncommon for people to associate ticket donation for kids mostly with sporting events, perhaps with a smattering of concert tickets thrown in for good measure. The truth of the matter is that there are so many events that kids love to take in that aren’t just limited to sports and concerts. Kids Up Front has been so fortunate to have the generous support of CIBC for our CIBC Theatre For All program. Through this program, we are able to offer local children tickets to a number of live arts productions. What’s sure to be a stand-out favourite for many of our kids this season the Seussical The Musical, presented by The Citadel Theatre, one of our founding partners in the CIBC Theatre For All program.
Not only did The Citadel provide 300 tickets over 7 performances during this show’s run, they also arranged for a special artist talk-back event after each performance with the groups that we sent. Being able to see a show that was produced specifically for children along with a sit-down with the performer afterwards certainly will be something that those kids will remember fondly for some time to come.
