Educational Giving

“Send-a-Kid” to a Student Matinee!

The Colonial Theatre is passionately invested in the cultural health of our community through our commitment to providing outreach for the underserved and educational opportunities for both children and adults.

Every year, the Student Matinee Series engages over 8,000 students and their educators from over 70 area schools in a variety of programs and workshops. In an effort to make ticket prices affordable and offset transportation charges to and from the theatre, The Colonial secures a variety of funding from local and national businesses and foundations to subsidize those costs through The Colonial Theatre’s Scholarship Fund. Full and partial scholarships are provided to schools who demonstrate financial need.
