This year's Give for Good donations will go towards supporting The Strand Theatre's Inspiration Tickets Program. This program supports community organizations that are making a difference in the lives of at-risk and marginalized youths. The Strand Theatre donates tickets to local organizations to be used as incentives and rewards for good behavior, good grades, community service projects, etc. The Inspiration Tickets Program gives at-risk youth the opportunity to experience live theatre, which they most likely would not be able to otherwise. Not only are they experiencing live theatre, they are also being exposed to future job opportunities, such as stage performers, stage hands, production managers and administrative positions that are needed to put on a show. The Strand Theatre hopes to provide 400 - 500 tickets to our partner organizations this season.


The Strand has implemented a very generous program that allows participants in the Caddo Parish Juvenile Drug Court Programs
and the Louisiana National Guard Youth Challenge Program to be given tickets allowing youth and their families that
would not otherwise be able to attend the magnificent plays and musical events at the Strand. Recently one mother remarked
in her words, "what a blessing it was to be able to go to the Strand with my children and enjoy a play, it was so fantastic for the whole family."
Cadets from the Youth Challenge Program who hail from all over the state are always so amazed with the Strand building and the YCP staff uses
a trip to the Strand for their hard work while at Camp Minden.
