Send a Kid to Theater

Through our Send a Kid to Theater initiatives, we provide thousands of children the opportunity to experience the joy and benefits of theater, at no cost to them.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations and government agencies to carry out our important work.

Making a gift today allows us to bring hundreds of public school students to a performance next season, free of any cost to them or their schools.
