Second Year of GT Nights at Woodruff Begins Thursday

Amid midterms, exams and projects, some students may overlook all the cultural and arts opportunities that exist outside their dorms around Atlanta. For the second year, the Woodruff Arts Center is making it easier for students to enjoy its offerings with three nights throughout the year for Tech students to see exhibits at the High Museum, performances at the Alliance Theatre and concerts by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for free.

On Thursday, Sept. 29, students may attend this year’s first Georgia Tech Night at the Woodruff Arts Center and choose to see either the Alliance Theatre’s “Into the Woods” or “Broke,” and may also visit the High Museum; the Symphony will not have a performance that evening. The Georgia Tech band will also perform, and attendees will enjoy free refreshments.

Stingers will run between the Student Center and the Arts Center from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a final departure from the Arts Center to campus at 10:30 p.m.

Alliance Theatre performances are ticketed, and tickets are available upon arrival at the Arts Center on a first-come, first-served basis. Ticketed performances begin at 8 p.m. Parking is available at the Woodruff Arts Center parking deck, or students may take MARTA to the Arts Center transit station.

Students will also have the opportunity to purchase a student pass to the Woodruff Arts Center, enabling them to attend unlimited events from the High, Alliance and Symphony for just $20 a year.
