The Student Government Association has approved a new fund to help Texas Wesleyan students experience the productions that are a part of Theatre Wesleyan's 2016-17 mainstage season.
The Texas Wesleyan Student Theatrical Experience Fund (STEF), a joint partnership with the Student Government Association and Theatre Wesleyan, will be available to the students beginning with When The Rain Stops Falling. This fund will be active through the online Theatre Wesleyan Box Office and soon in-person at the Theatre Wesleyan business office in Dan Waggoner Annex.
The STEF will allow students to be able to see Theatre Wesleyan productions at no cost to them. Service organizations for the performing arts, including the Theatre Development Fund (since 1968), which inspired The STEF, have allowed and enabled attendance of unique theatrical experiences for everyone, including students, at discounted rates.
"The Student Government Association is extremely excited to be collaborating with Theatre Wesleyan on this incredible opportunity to enhance the students' experience at Texas Wesleyan," Student Government Association President Zahraa Saheb said. "I am very excited for the Student Government Association officers and Theatre Wesleyan for putting the students first."
The STEF Tickets may be used for the remainder of Theatre Wesleyan's 2016-17 season which includes the upcoming productions of When The Rain Stops Falling (opening Sept. 22), Stop Kiss, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and Urinetown: The Musical.
"Student Government Association works for the betterment of our student body's overall experience," Saheb continues. "This is a great opportunity that we hope the students will greatly enjoy and benefit from this year."
Tickets purchased through The STEF are only available for Texas Wesleyan University students. Students from other schools or universities may purchase a ticket at the full price of $5.00 if they show their ID at the Box Office.
