What Young People & Educators Say:

“Whoa! Would you look at this place!”
— 3rd grade student upon entering the Auditorium for our Alvin Ailey Student Matinee in 2017.

“When my students saw Too Hot to Handelthe look on their faces was priceless!
— 3rd Grade Teacher

“After my students took a field trip to the Auditorium Theatre, one of my students wrote a two-page essay on his own time describing everything that he saw, from the moment they left school on the bus to head downtown, to walking into the theatre, to the performance itself, describing the experience with all of his senses. He truly enjoyed the entire experience!
— 4th Grade Teacher
