Up Next is a non-profit organization of Bay Area teens, by Bay Area teens, and for Bay Area teens. Our mission: to get our peers interested in attending live theater (specifically focusing on bringing teens to the smaller, more experimental and cutting-edge theaters in the Bay Area). This mutually beneficial relationship will allow teenagers to engage with and learn from the local theater community while building new audiences for the theaters. Up Next’s primary program, 8Rate, offers $8 rush tickets for teens at theaters around the Bay Area. Other programs include discounted “Next Night Out”s for teens at theaters about every other month, pre- and post-show discussions, interacting with Focus Actors, workshops with theater companies, and school outreach. By getting young people interested in local theater companies, we hope to cultivate a new generation of theater-goers.
