Make BELIEVE in Arts Education Benefit

Playhouse Square traditionally has a benefit gala to raise money for our education programming. Education and our children were a primary focus of our efforts throughout the many months we were isolated due to the pandemic. This past year, we remained relevant and connected to students, teachers, and families through the creation of online programming streming to more than 90,000 students. 

Our Trustees and Advancement Committee decided not to do an in-person event this year, but the need is still there in 2022. The ability to sustain our streaming initiatives, social justice student programming and sensory-friendly performances are a top priority for Playhouse Square. 

In 2022, Playhouse Square will commit over $1 million for community engagement and education programming serving more than 250,000 students, educators, and community members. Your participation in this “make believe” event will support three very real education initiatives – Streaming, Sensory-Friendly Performances, and the Student Matinee Social Justice Series – making our programs accessible to the widest possible audience.
