The TCAP Experience

Our Theatre and Culture Access Program (TCAP) connects those who might not otherwise have access to professional theatre, to some of the most impacting and enriching live performances Los Angeles has to offer. Each outing brings together an inter-generational mix of Unusual Suspects students & families to experience professional theatre together, often for the first time. In addition to the show, our staff leads workshops before and after the show to foster an active experience for all!

“I think the play was very beautiful. The costumes and the set were interesting to look at. I’m very appreciative that the actors talked to our kids afterwards. They were so excited to ask questions.”

“I really enjoy coming to these shows because it’s bonding time with my daughter. Like back in the old days of Our Town, people had time to bond. But now with technology, it’s harder to find time to spend with my daughter. I get to do that when I come to see shows with you guys! Thank you!”

“I think it was a good event. Look at my daughters’ faces. They loved it, and I would do anything to see them that happy.”

“This was my first time seeing a show. It was different than I expected. I am glad that my kids get to go to the theatre when they are young. It is a good experience for them. I am looking forward to the next time you offer a performance field trip to our family.”
