The Heart of the Community
The historic Shubert Theater is a not-for profit arts, education, and community institution serving the people of Connecticut and in particular the City of New Haven. As a public resource, the Shubert presents a wide array of programs to a diverse community. Its programming includes performers representing many cultures, nationalities and varieties of artistic expression. The Shubert also maintains comprehensive education and community outreach programs, from a student series in the theater to master classes and lecture demonstrations in schools and community centers. The Shubert’s Night At A Performance (S.N.A.P.) program makes it possible for families who might not otherwise be able to attend the theater, to come at no cost to them.
