For many kids, there is no chance for them to see a live Broadway musical. With approximately one in five children in the United States living below the federal poverty level (U.S. Census, 2014), experiencing enriching cultural activities is challenging for some and impossible for many.
Here at DPAC, we believe that every child should have the chance to see real people perform on a stage and experience the magic of live musical theater. For the children we serve, these opportunities are more than just a ticket, they’re a chance to experience something that could inspire their goals and dreams for the future.
In response to requests from Season Seat Members for options to donate tickets to a charitable cause, DPAC has created the DPAC Discover Broadway program. By donating tickets that you cannot use or exchange, your generosity will help local children and youth in four mentoring programs in Durham. For a young person who has only dreamed of attending a professional theater event, this may be the opportunity of a lifetime.
- The Ticket donations deadline is at least 72 hours before a show date. A minimum of 2 tickets may be donated.
- The tickets will be given to a partnered organization who will distribute to a deserving child and their parent/guardian. DPAC does not distribute tickets directly to individuals or families.DPAC has partnered with certified 501(c)(3) organizations that serve low-income or at-risk children in the Durham area.
- Once tickets have been donated, they are not able to be recalled or reused.
