Teacher Appreciation

The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts is proud to celebrate Philadelphia's most inspiring teachers. In partnership with The School District of Philadelphia and The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, we are offering 1,000 free tickets to teachers, librarians, and counselors who go above and beyond the call of duty in the classroom and in school. Nominate inspiring teachers by sending an email to: Be sure to include the teacher’s first and last name, email address, the grade and subject(s) taught, and how the teacher has been inspiring. Teachers can be nominated one time during the school year. Winners will be selected on a first come first served basis to attend participating performances during the Kimmel Center’s season!

In addition, The Kimmel Center is offering all teachers a discount on tickets to select performances of up to 35%. The discount information, along with applicable performances, will be shared via email by The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers. Teachers can also access discount ticket information by calling our Group Sales office at 215-790-5883.

The Kimmel Center hopes all educators will take advantage of free and reduced cost education programs campus-wide that occasionally include free transportation to The Kimmel Center campus.
