Field-trip Fund

Affordable Tickets for School-kids

The Bardavon has a long history of giving all children and their families the chance to attend quality arts performances at affordable prices. With regular cuts in public school budgets for arts education and field-trips, the need for reduced-price tickets and transportation subsidies has only grown stronger. So, the Bardavon is stepping up the effort to reach as many children as possible through our Field-trip Fund.  The Field-trip Fund underwrites ticket costs for children who would not otherwise be able to come to these performances!

A gift of $1,000 will help 333 students (elementary through high school) attend a live arts performance at the Bardavon or UPAC. For many of these kids, field- trips to one of our Daytime Series productions may be their only exposure to a live arts performance in a given year!

Shows such as Dinosaur Petting Zoo from Australia, Outside from Canada, and the HVP’s Young People’s Concerts offer valuable experiences that create lasting positive impressions for thousands every year.

Your gift to the Field-Trip Fund will help us continue to reach Hudson Valley kids with beautiful, engaging performances that will stay with them for a lifetime.
