Free tickets...with a catch

Free tickets are being offered for theaters throughout the city. But the catch is one you don't have much control over...your age.

It's the tenth year for Free Ticket February, presented by The League of Indianapolis Theatres (which, given its name, should also have a softball tournament in the summer but, alas, doesn't). The admirable program is designed to get young people to sample the performing arts--and not just shows that target (or pander) to their age group.

Your mission: Encourage at least one teen in your life to take advantage of at least one of the following offers. Let me know how you do.
