There’s no doubt that between today’s politics and environmental issues, we’re all in need of a little more positivity, hope and love. More importantly, though, we need to stay informed and motivated. Although theater sometimes gets a bad rap for being all jazz hands and no substance, it has more to offer than most people give it credit for.
Theater not only expands your horizons and exposes you to new ideas, but it also provides you with a sense of entertainment you probably haven’t experienced in years. The best part? You don’t have to break the bank to see a show on stage. Of course, there is nothing quite as magical as seeing a Broadway show in New York City, but there are some incredible performances happening right in your very own community. Here are some local theaters that are putting on great shows at a college student friendly price.
