Albuquerque Theatre Guild Spring 2018 Play-Dates
Good news! The Play-Dates program continues this year with local community theatre companies offering a diverse schedule of productions. This program is sponsored by the Albuquerque Theatre Guild (ATG) and the Lineberry Foundation. It gives middle and high school students an opportunity to enjoy live stage theater to select productions offered by ATG member theaters free of charge! We also assist with transportation to the event, if needed, and a “Play-Date Host” -- someone knowledgeable about the show who welcomes the students/youth to the show and makes this a memorable experience!
Productions available for the spring season are:
Cinderella. (Broadway Musical) Popejoy Hall. Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 2:00pm. Rogers & Hammerstein’s Tony Award winning musical comes to Albuquerque on a national tour.
