Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Metropolitan Phoenix and Metropolitan Tucson as well as nearby areas that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted bus services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.

In the 2017-2018 school year, Act One brought more than 37,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on more than 86 performance field trips and nearly 100 museum field trips in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.

Choose your field trip.

Act One released the full calendar of 2018-19 field trip opportunities during the week of July 23. Schools can choose from more than 100 field trips options, including trips to see live theater, ballet and jazz performances as well as opportunities to tour museums and gardens.

Place your request.

Registration for field trips opened on Monday, August 6. Complete the online form with information about your school, your top choice of field trip, and your two back up choices. Requests will be granted on a need-based basis, meaning schools with a higher percentage of students on free-and-reduced lunch will be granted priority.

Get ready to go.

Your school is responsible for preparing students for the field trip, securing permission slips, reserving district buses, identifying chaperones and ensuring that students get on the bus. To participate in the program, your school will need to sign a service agreement and pay the $1 per person partnership fee.

Act One is responsible for the rest!

We coordinate your trip with the arts organization, pay the admission cost to the field trip and send teaching materials to help you prepare students for the field trip experience. Additionally, Act One will reimburse your school’s full transportation costs to/from the field trip (or book buses for schools without access to district busing).
