The Arts Access Initiative was developed by bergenPAC to further its mission of making the live performing arts available to everyone in our diverse community. bergenPAC provides free tickets to organizations serving individuals who would otherwise be unable to visit the theater due to financial limitations. Stop in and see Trish for details. Monthly emails will NO longer be sent out. You must come into the center to request tickets. THANK YOU TO THE Bergen PAC for continuing this incredible program!
