1 min read

For the sixth year in a row, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals presented a check for $10,000 to the Cambridge Public Schools (CPS) for the promotion of arts education. Since its inception in 2002, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals Fund for Cultural Enrichment has subsidized tickets for thousands of Cambridge students to attend theatrical performances, cultural events, and museum exhibitions. To date, Hasty Pudding has donated more than $70,000.

This year, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals invited members of CPS community to attend the final dress rehearsal of its 161st production, “Acropolis Now.” Prior to the start of the performance, cast members presented the $10,000 check to CPS Superintendent Carolyn Turk and CPS Director of Visual and Performing Arts Elaine Koury.
