Theatre Arts Productions (TAP) is trying something new for its upcoming production of Matilda The Musical, set for Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 20 at 1 and 7 p.m. at Wellington High School — the local nonprofit is not charging admission.
Dubbed Free-4-All Theatre, the goal is to expose live musical theater to those who may not have been able to afford the usual $25 to $30 ticket price.
“Our ticket prices are very low compared to other theaters and theater companies,” Founding Artistic Director Jaycie Cohen said. “But we feel we are not reaching all segments of the community, so we are making admission free.”
Donations will be accepted at the door and in advance.
“If we can cover our expenses through sponsorships and donations, we will consider it a success,” Cohen said.
All tickets are reserved and can be ordered through the box office at (561) 340-9623 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations can also be made at www.tapstars.org.
