Send a student to see BLUEY presented by Broadway Utica!


Hey Friends! Get ready for Bluey, a six-year-old Blue Heeler dog who loves to play and turn everyday family life into extraordinary adventures that unfold in unpredictable and hilarious ways, bringing her family, friends and community into her world of fun.  Bluey’s Big Play comes to The Stanley Theatre on March 29th for two live performances. Broadway Utica has just set a goal to invite 500+ students to the morning performance of Bluey’s Big Play through the Students on Broadway Program on March 29, 2023 at 10:30AM.  For Broadway Utica to achieve this goal, we will need your support. 

One of Broadway Utica’s missions is to make a difference in the lives of the youth of this community.  “We have the opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of the children that live in the surrounding area of the beautiful Stanley Theatre. With Broadway Touring productions coming through the City of Utica on a regular basis, it only makes sense to find a way to offer the experience of live Theatre to as many students as we can.”   said Kristen Matteson, Youth Programs Coordinator at Broadway Theatre League of Utica.

Through Broadway Utica’s Students on Broadway Program, students are invited to see a production that they otherwise would not have the opportunity to see at little to no cost.  The hope is to spark an interest and/ or light up a fire inside leading them to the world of Theatre.  The Theatre offers so many opportunities to all; a career, a different outlook on life, emotions that you never imagined feeling, creating bonds with others, education, but more importantly the Theatre can bring you to another place without leaving your seat.  A place filled with adventure, joy and a few hours of serenity. 

Like Bluey, Broadway Utica wants to bring a world of fun to this community.  Join us in making a real difference for the youth who will truly benefit from feeling the joy and serenity that being in a Theatre exudes.  No donation is too small.  We invite you to become a part of our Team to make it possible for a child/children to see the performance of Bluey’s Big Play on March 29th at 10:30AM.  Go to to make your donation under the Student on Broadway Gift Designation.   The number of students that will be able to attend the show will depend on the total donations received.  

To find out if your school, group or organization is eligible to see this live performance of Bluey’s Big Play on March 29th at 10:30AM, visit Just a small fee of $6.00 will be collected from each ticket holder to attend the performance.  Applications will be accepted starting on January 30th and end on January 31st.  Broadway Utica staff will notify you once your application has been approved.  Eligible youth must be involved with a local agency, school/community program or youth group in grades Kindergarten to 2nd grade. This goal will rely on the number of donations received.  For more information please call 315-624-9444 or email
