Support Us

In this time of COVID-19, your donation means more than ever.  It helps us bring the artistic and real-life benefits of theatre education to our community through a wide variety of online classes, programs, and performances, as well as to keep our staff and faculty of professional theatre artists employed. In an effort to make more classes financially accessible to students during the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering more financial aid than ever and have supplied technology (tablets and hotspots) to young students who lack access. We’ve worked hard to make sure our programs and scholarship funds can safely meet the overwhelming need of the low-income families we serve through our new virtual youth and Life Stories programs.
