Kidstock

Kidstock! is ECA’s FREE, annual family arts celebration, featuring musical performances, theatre, arts education workshops, and activities for kids. As the cornerstone of ECA’s programming for families, Kidstock! strives to engage children from a young age in diverse and exciting arts experiences.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, ECA will not hold an in-person Kidstock! event in 2022. We hope to welcome our community back to Kidstock! in January 2023. Please stay tuned!

Arts Access Programs

Arts for Everyone is ECA's $2 ticket program for low-income school groups, families and older adults. With the objective to increase access to the performing arts for young people, the program was established in 2014.

ECA offers Arts for Everyone tickets to low-income families and older adults attending Saturday Matinee performances. These patrons:

  • Are invited to attend any (and all!) Saturday Matinees in the 2021-22 season at $2 per ticket.
  • Simply notify the ECA Box Office that they qualify for Arts for Everyone, either in person or over the phone. (No proof of eligibility required.)
  • There are no restrictions on what constitutes a "family" - bring those special people you want to share a live performance with!

Arts for Everyone is made possible with generous support from the Hazel Miller Foundation and Nancy Bittner.
