Theatre is for everyone- every single person- and we value our community members coming out to see the work we do for YOU. Here are some of the ways we are working to make theatre more accessible...

BIPOC COMMUNITY NIGHTS
The second Saturday 8PM performance of Kitchen Theatre Company productions are dedicated to inviting Black, Indigenous, and communities of color (BIPOC) to experience our shows together.
On these evenings, we invite people who identify as such to come to KTC and be in a space that centers the experience of a person from the Global Majority in our theatre. These performances are also open to multi-racial family members and partners, including those who are white. If you do not identify as BIPOC, we invite you to join us at an alternative performance to allow this evening to remain a space for the shared experience of BIPOC communities.
All BIPOC Community Nights are Name Your Price ticketing - pre-sale online and in-person box office. A limited number of free tickets are available for BIPOC Community Nights. Patrons are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 607-272-0570 to request free tickets to the performance.
“Having free childcare so my husband and I could actually see a show together was such a treat. The providers were lovely and my 3 year old had no interest in leaving when we came to pick her up. Our 9 month old had a hard time but we had never left her before and the caregivers texted us to let us know she had been crying a while so we hurried back to get her but we had been able to see the entire show by then and have our first kid-free date since having our younger child.”
-Laura and Zac Ballard, with Junpier and Cora

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When and where do I drop off my child(ren)?
Childcare drop-off begins half an hour before curtain at 3:30PM at the First Presbyterian Church (315 N Cayuga St) and ends at 6:30PM. Drop-off DOES NOT happen at the theatre. Please plan accordingly. We do not allow late seating at the theatre once the performance begins.
The sign-up form is just for registering your children at First Presbyterian Church. You must still complete a ticket purchase for the show (dates and time for each show with a corresponding purchase link found above). If ticket cost is a barrier for utilizing this program and attending the show, please call the Box Office or email us at email@example.com to buy a Pay What You Want ticket once you’ve submitted your childcare sign-up form.
Does filling out the sign-up form secure my show tickets?
Reservations are on a first-come-first served bases. Only 12 children are allowed per date. Children will be divided in groups. This will help keep spacing 3 ft apart. We ask children 3+ come wearing masks. While kids are playing 3ft apart and if outside, masks can be removed, but while playing in a group, children will be asked to keep their masks on. Parents should prepare to come with a change of clothing for their child(ren).
