Blumenthal Performing Arts received a $26,150 grant for the Duke Energy Ticket Scholarship Fund, which will provide 390 tickets to young people and their families. Recipients will see Into the Woods (Feb. 11 and 12) and Circus 1903 (May 6 and 7).
According to their website, "The Duke Energy Foundation provides philanthropic support to address the needs of the communities where its customers live and work." They provide charitable gifts to education initiatives, early childhood literacy, environment and community impact and arts and culture.
Through this grant money, students saw Into the Woods and documented their experience through pictures. Take a look below.
