Blue Star Theatres offers free and discounted theater tickets, classes and other services for veterans and military families. It's a collaboration between Theatre Communications Group and Blue Start Families. This week, the group announced that the program is expanding to 85 theaters in 33 states.

Blue Star Theatres launched in late 2012 and builds on the similar Blue Star Museums effort that offers military families free admission to hundreds of museums.

D.C. locations include Ford's Theatre, Folger Theatre, Woolly Mammoth and Studio Theatre. It also includes Arlington's Signature Theatre, and in Maryland, the program includes Baltimore's CENTERSTAGE, Silver Spring's Round House Theatre and Ellicott City's Chesapeake Shakespeare Co.
