At the September 22, 2015 meeting of the MCCSC Board of School Trustees, Mr. Randy White, Artistic Director for Cardinal Stage Company, shared stories about the incredible fundraising efforts that provide theater access for thousands of MCCSC students each year.
Mr. White shared the amazing impact of the Cardinal Stage program in a presentation at the meeting. Each year, the Cardinal Stage Company, through the Community Access Tickets, Cardinal for Schools, Cardinal for Kids, and Play it Forward programs, brings thousands of students to plays. In the past five years, 13,000 students have seen plays at either no or greatly reduced cost. A total of 5,000 K-12 students will attend Cardinal plays this season. With the assistance of 100+ Women Who Care, Cardinal will bring 3,000 students from MCCSC Title I elementary schools to Cardinal for Kids shows at no cost to the students or the schools.
The MCCSC thanks Mr. White, the staff of Cardinal, and all of the donors who make these opportunities possible for our students.
