Education & Outreach
The Feller Academy’s goal is to nuture the academic and emotional education of young people through theatre; and to make the rich benefits reaped from the experience available to all socio-economic levels and all traditionally underserved populations..
The arts find themselves in a very precarious position in schools and in some communities due to difficult economic challenges. Introducing young people to the world of theatre remains at the core of what we do in education programming The Henegar Center.
We strive to further these three key areas:
AUDIENCES: inspiring current and future audiences to discover theatre and its connection to their lives.
ARTISTS: investing in training, support and development of emerging young arts professionals who are the future of our field.
ARTS EDUCATION: contributing to the community-wide efforts to improve the quality and scope of arts education in Melbourne.
The Henegar Center is committed to ensuring the arts are accessible to the widest possible community by offering a number of education and community outreach programs.
STUDENT RUSH TICKETS
Many students at the high school and college levels are required to see outside performances as a part of their curriculum. While it is not always possible for teachers to put together student groups, rush tickets are an affordable way for students to fulfill this requirement. Five minutes prior to curtain, the best available seats are made available to students with a valid ID for only $5 each.
