At the Lincoln Theatre, the words 'education and 'community' are not simply parts of catch phrases to be found in a brochure.
Around here they represent who we are and what we do.
We take those words very seriously.
From the Arts in Education program that brings young people from throughout Skagit County to the Lincoln to experience top quality performances at minimal to no cost to the students, to collaborations with the Mount Vernon Library to present wonderful family entertainment; to the work we do with many social service agencies throughout the region to provide opportunities for education and self improvement; the Lincoln Theatre is well positioned to continue a long tradition of providing educational opportunities and community support to the residents of the Skagit Valley and beyond.
Arts and Education
The Lincoln Theatre's annual Arts in Education program brings diverse and dynamic programs to families and school children in Skagit County and beyond at affordable admission rates.
As schools continue to cut back on arts programs in the school systems due to state deficits and the general economy, it is more vital than ever that the Lincoln Theatre continue to present these programs to our community.
Our goal has been and remains to keep the school shows affordable (offering free and reduced rates) and assessible (helping to defray transportation costs) to kindergartners through high school.
The admission fees for the quality programming we offer does not come close to paying artist fees or technical needs. It therefore becomes a year round project of the theatre to raise the funds necessary to continue this vital program through development of partnerships in the private, public and business community.
