NEW BRUNSWICK—State Theatre announced the launch of its Students Meet The Arts program today. The program allows students to attend many State Theatre classical music and dance programs, including both live performances and HD broadcasts, for only $8 per ticket.* The Students Meet The Arts program has been made possible by the support of the Frank and Lydia Bergen Foundation.

“As a nonprofit organization, an integral part of the State Theatre’s mission is to develop future audiences for the classical arts as well as entertainment. By reducing ticket prices, we are ensuring that our classical arts events are accessible to children and young adults and that we build a strong cultural environment in our community,” recently said Mark W.
