If your school is part of AISD's Creative Learning Initiative, you may have funds available to help cover the cost of the tickets to the play! If you're not sure if your school participates in CLI, check with your principal.


• Partial Ticket Sponsor

Title 1 schools may qualify for a Partial Ticket Sponsor arranged by Pollyanna Theatre Company. These are provided by individuals in the theatre community, and are limited in number. If your school might require a partial sponsor in order to make the field trip possible for students/families to afford, please send an email to joy.pollytheatre[at] today, and we will do our best to partner your school with a partial sponsor. (A typical sponsorship can bring your ticket price down to about $3.00/person seeing the show.)
