One of Third Rail’s exciting new projects this season is our Student Subscription Program. With your help, these students will experience the magic of live theater and the community of Third Rail all season long.
A recent study at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, found that “Live theater enhance(s) literary knowledge, tolerance and empathy among students.” For the reduced subscription package cost, you can make this happen for one of our eligible applicants. Find out more about them and who is still needing a sponsor here!
