TADA! needs your help to continue providing youth & teens with our FREE youth development, arts education, and unique musical theater programming.

We have been unpacking and examining what it means to be an antiracist, multicultural organization and a leader within the youth theater/arts education field.

As such, TADA! Youth Theater is committed to providing every child an opportunity to create, imagine, learn, and experience the joy of musical theater, regardless of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, nationality, and immigration status.

TADA! is a second home to the youth we support, and they need their creative outlet now more than ever. We all know that this is a hard time for many. Please consider giving what you can to support these programs.

Arts for All Intiative The Arts for All Initiative provides a new financial model for our class & camp tuition. TADA! will provide full-tuition sponsorships to students (like Isabella) who demonstrate a self-expressed need and identify as BIPOC. LEARN MORE >

P.S. 254 Queens uses a “whole-child” approach to education, where 91% of the students are BIPOC. TADA! has been with this school for 3 years through a corporate grant that has unfortunately changed their funding priorities – which is why we need you.  
There is something special about participating in the arts... Getting on a stage and singing about kindness, for example, has given our students a voice and chance to step outside their comfort zone and lead. As they improve and see their own progress, their self-confidence grows. It has been amazing to watch our students grow from uncertain, hesitant, and timid children to children who believe in themselves and in others.
