The Norris Education Department began an Outreach program in the summer of 2004, inviting selected children’s groups to watch a special performance of the summer productions at a greatly reduced cost. Thirteen shows and over 5,200 students later, audiences have included foster youth, family shelters, special education groups, and schoolchildren from South Bay to South Central. Many of these children would NEVER be able to experience live theatre in their communities. For most, it is the first time they have ever attended a live performance. We are so grateful for the donations that make this possible.
Make a Donation!
Our Education programs are made possible largely through the generous support of individuals and foundations. These donations provide not only infrastructure and administrative support, but are used to provide class scholarships to children with financial needs. Please help us keep the performing arts alive by donating to the Norris Center. Donations can be made by calling the Box Office at (310) 544-0403 ext. 267. Thank you!
