Broadway Theater League Of Utica Announces “Students On Broadway”

Luke Tubia, WIBX

In a move designed to give students more access to the arts, the Broadway Theater League of Utica is announcing the creation of a new arts and education program.

The new “Students on Broadway” program kicks off next week with a performance of the show “Memphis.”

Students from 26 schools in Oneida and Herkimer Counties have been offered the chance to see a matinee of the show on January 23, for just $5 per ticket.

In addition to the invitation to the show, schools were given an educational packet that gives teachers material in social studies, English and theater arts that incorporates a lesson about 1950′s America that coincides with the theme of “Memphis.”

The Theater League says that by giving students the chance to see a performance with their classmates, students get a chance to experience the power of arts education.

They say the $5 ticket price removes barriers to participation, because they want everyone to be able to see a serving of the arts, regardless of financial resources.

The Broadway Theater League of Utica plans to have at least one “Students on Broadway” event per year with more possible if funding is available.
