tickets to preview performances for the reminder of the 2013 season.

“To ensure that younger audiences are exposed to the theater, we are making it easy
and affordable with complimentary tickets to preview performances,” says ICT
Artistic Director caryn desai [sic]. “We all know that a well-rounded education
includes an appreciation for the arts. But even more important, we want to help kids
learn to connect on a human level – not through texting or emails, but
people-to-people through theater, the most human art form.”

This special year-round invitation is limited to high school students only, but is
not restricted to Long Beach and is open to any high school student with a valid ID.
