Access the Arts

Provides ticket scholarships to underserved groups and arts outreach with visiting artists including lecture demonstrations, masterclasses, and in-school performances for students across the community.

Sensory-Friendly Performances

Launched in September 2016, these events are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families and friends with children or adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or sensory sensitivities. While the integrity of the performance remains the same, certain elements are modified to create an inclusive audience experience.

“My experience at the Tobin Center was like no other, when we went to see “Ballet Folklorico de Mexice de Amalia Hernandez” my friend and I experienced the amazingness of their show.  It didn’t just take me back to my childhood, it also taught me more about the culture.  And it all lasted until hours after the show because we had the opportunity to talk to Viviana Basanta who’s the daughter of Amalia.”
- Brenda Salinas, Senior at East Central HS
