Theatre Communications Group and Blue Star Families Announce Blue Star Theatres Program
Theatre Communications Group (TCG) and Blue Star Families have announced that 85 theatres in 33 states have joined the Blue Star Theatres program. In Arizona, Childsplay is currently the only participating theatre.
The Blue Star Theatres program connects a variety of theatre offerings to military personnel and their families across the United States, building on the work already occurring at many theatres nationwide, including: playwriting classes to empower creative expression for veterans; community discussions on plays whose themes resonate with military families; free or discounted ticket programs; and, job postings and casting notices on military bases. TCG and Blue Star Families connect theatres with local bases and military families, and develop and disseminate best-practices for engaging with deployed personnel, veterans and service families.
