ITC Great Plains Provides Grant To Support Educational Programming

TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 2, 2023) – ITC Great Plains is supporting youth theatre programs throughout the 2023-2024 season through a $2,500 grant awarded to Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy.

Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy has been an important part of the Topeka and Shawnee County community for nearly 87 years. With a mission of bringing a diverse community together to learn about, experience and celebrate the joys of live theatre, the organization aims to reach those experiencing the theatre as audience members as well as those performing.

“When children participate in live theatre, whether from the stage or as part of the props, set, or tech teams, or in the audience; they grow in confidence, resilience, imagination, and community,” said Topeka Civic Theatre Director of Development Jodi Boyd. “ITC Great Plains’ $2,500 grant will support life-long learning with educational programming for all ages.”

Through its grant programs, ITC Great Plains supports organizations that make a strong, positive social impact and improve the quality of life in the communities served by the company.

“Helping to provide an educational environment that supports growth and building the imaginations of youth aligns with our interests at ITC Great Plains,” said ITC Regulatory Strategy Manager Patrick Woods. We’re pleased to support Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy, as our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond providing reliable electric transmission service.” Woods also serves as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy.
