Kirsten Greenidge: Inspired by the Huntington

The Huntington's Student Matinee Series provides discounted and free tickets to more than 5,000 middle and high school students each season, and this season, we've felt its lasting impact particularly powerfully.

In 1986, Kirsten Greenidge attended a student matinee performance of Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone. The experience was a seminal one for her, one that inspired her to become a playwright. 16 years later, her play The Luck of the Irish broke Huntington records when it made its world premiere at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA / South End. Check out this video from Kirsten about how the Huntington has made a difference to her.

Your support helps us continue to impact the lives of tens of thousands of young people each season. For every dollar you contribute to our Annual Fund before June 30, Huntington Board Chairman Carol Deane will contribute an additional two dollars, thereby tripling your gift. (For example, if you give $100, Carol will give an additional $200, tripling your impact to $300.)

Please make an Annual Fund gift by June 30 to the Huntington. Many thanks for your support.
