Change starts from within.

Standing in Solidarity

As an organization devoted to making extraordinary performing arts a vital part of everyone’s lives from the earliest years onward, we specifically acknowledge our responsibility to give young Black people the opportunity to see themselves and their experiences reflected on stage and to feel a sense of true belonging in our theaters. Our past efforts, though well meaning, have not been enough.
