Watching a live show is a powerful experience! 
Once again, for 2014-2015, the TDSB Arts Department has provided funding to bring live performances to schools through Prologue to the Performing Arts.

The TDSB Arts Department has a limited amount of funding to offer a 50% discount on select shows by 36 of the 52 Prologue artists in Dance, Opera, Storytelling/Spoken Word and Theatre. This funding is available to schools based on their position on the Learning Opportunities Index (LOI), on a first come first served basis. 

To inquire if your school qualifies for a subsidy, or if you have any questions, contact Janet O’Neill, TDSB Performing Arts Convenor, at [email protected] or 416-396-5423. 

To bring magic and imagination right into your classroom, gymnasium or library, contact Prologue to the Performing Arts at [email protected] or 416-591-9092, ext. 229.
