About Many Mentors Initiative

In order to expand our education programs to accommodate non-traditional learners and mentoring pairs, the IRT established the Many Mentors Initiative. 

The IRT has designated Mentor Days throughout our season. Mentoring pairs can purchase reduced mentor tickets and complimentary tickets for the designated Mentor Days. The Many Mentors Initiative welcomes all educative relationships and ages, whether you belong to a formal mentoring program or have forged a similar relationship with community, church, or school organizations.

This season features a variety of works that will surprise, challenge, engage and delight audiences. Most importantly, all of our productions inspire conversation, undoubtedly one of the key ingredients in mentorship. We hope to see you and your mentee(s) at the theatre.

Pricing Information

Mentoring PairsIn order to utilize the Many Mentor ticket deal, mentors can purchase one discounted ticket for $25 to receive one FREE ticket for their mentee for designated Many Mentors performances (see dates for each show below).


Study Guides IRT education staff prepares elaborate study guides to help you prepare for the show. They include background and historical information to help provide context for the show. We hope the study guides help make your trip to IRT a fully-realized learning experience!

ProgramThe Stage Door is the IRT's complimentary program book that features a variety of additional information and insight into each production, including notes from the director and designers.
