About the ACT Pass program for Families and Individuals - Tickets
CTC's ACT Pass program increases equity and inclusion by providing over 10,000 accessible $5 tickets to audiences traditionally excluded from professional arts experiences due to economic disparities and hardship. Eligibility is established using the free and reduced lunch household income guidelines, statement of need, and recognition of other barriers to participation. Once approved, ACT Pass membership lasts for 2 years. All ACT Pass holders automatically qualify for scholarships to Theatre Arts Training classes and camps.
