What is my donation supporting?
Proceeds from the Gala go towards supporting TADA!’s mission of providing young people from different backgrounds with musical theater programs that inspire them to be creative, learn, and think differently.

We accomplish this through a variety of programming including producing original musicals for children, teens, and family audiences at affordable prices; a free, year-round, pre-professional training & a positive youth development program for the Resident Youth Ensemble (ages 8-18); musical theater classes/camps for the public; as well as musical theater residencies in NYC schools and community centers.
