MainStage Sponsor 2017-18 and 2018-19

Children's Theatre's mission is “to educate, entertain and engage audiences of all ages through professional theatrical productions and arts education programming.”  The MainStage at the Taft series, performed in downtown Cincinnati, includes daytime performances for school audiences and weekend performances for the public.  These family-friendly, one-hour, professional productions are often a child’s first exposure to the magic of live theatre.  The support of the Dater Foundation during the 2017-18  and 2018-19 seasons allowed for subsidizing tickets for 10,362 students who would have otherwise been unable to attend and allowed for keeping the cost of tickets for all schools to $8 per ticket, even though the actual cost of putting a child in a seat is $25.  Of the schools who were provided these tickets, 93% of students are eligible for free or reduced lunch programs.  Over 100,000 children/students attend annually.
