My First Musical
"My First Musical" is Mercury Summer Stock’s educational outreach program designed to give underserved children from the school districts surrounding the Greater Cleveland community an opportunity to see their first musical theatre show at no cost. The experience, which includes admission to an unabridged performance of each show in the Mercury season, as well as educational and artistic interaction opportunities, will provide the initial theatre exposure a child needs to foster an interest and passion in the theatre arts for life.
Launched in June 2009, “My First Musical” offers children (12 and under) and their parents, who may be faced with economic hardship, free admission to each production in Mercury's current season. All applications must be received in writing and will be reviewed and awarded on a first-come basis, and in consideration of qualifying income levels. Each show of our current season will participate in one non-public performance for the “My First Musical” program and will consist of study guide materials, a pre-show interactive workshop with the various designers, an unabridged performance and a post-show discussion with the actors and director. Please contact 216.771.5862 if you would like to learn more, or be on the organizing end of the program.
