Throughout her adventures at the academy, one of the most important lessons that Miri learns is the power and joy of reading. As the words and books come alive around her, she encounters stories and knowledge that have the ability to change her life.
In order to celebrate the message of Princess Academy, the cast and crew want to share the gift of reading with those who – like Miri – have little opportunity to have a book of their own. To help us with our goal, we are creating a mountain of books in the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC).
We invite you to help our mountain grow by donating your favorite children/YA books (new and gently used please!). Books may be added to the donation bins in the HFAC, the HFAC box office, or the Marriott Center box office. After the show closes, all books will be donated to deserving children in the Provo School District. (Requested reading levels: K-6th grade.)
Coming to see the show? Bring a book to the ticket office and receive an additional $2 off one child’s ticket price. (This offer is valid for Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday evening performances only. Excluding previous purchases.)
Tickets are going fast! Don’t miss your chance to see this beloved story come to life!
