Owens Theatre Program and the Valentine Theatre Partner for Schools Helping Schools

Posted Nov 18th, 2015 by Jared Meade  Category: Community Interest,


Community members are cordially invited to support the second annual, Schools Helping Schools, a partnership with the Valentine Theatre’s education outreach program, by purchasing a patron ticket that includes a private dessert reception following Owens Theatre performance, Theatre Express.

The patron ticket will cover the cost of 10 students from a Toledo Public School to attend a Valentine School Day performance throughout the 2015-16 school year. Schools located in underserved areas will be the recipients of these tickets.

The Valentine Theatre’s education outreach program, Valentine School Days, provides professional theatre productions for children from pre-school through high school. The national tours are top-quality and incorporate the arts together with the Ohio Core Standards and provides for a learning opportunity that ties literature with the spoken-word.

Patron tickets are $30 each and holders are encouraged to attend the Saturday, Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m. Owens Theatre Program performance, Theatre Express, a production of six different plays that have been written, cast, rehearsed and performed in a 24-hour period before the private dessert reception, featuring the Owens Jazz Express immediately following.

Toledo Express will take place at Owens Community College’s Toledo-area Campus, 30335 Oregon Road, Perrysburg.

To purchase patron tickets, please visit or call 419-242-2787. Your total purchase is tax deductible.
