A Note from our President & CEO: A New Season of Challenges and Opportunities
See what we’re doing.

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.

New Victory Arts Break

While we may have had to cancel our season, New Victory is committed to bringing the performing arts to the widest possible audience, which is why we’re excited to introduce you to New Victory Arts Break. Guided by our Teaching Artists, you and your family can discover new skills from the comfort of your own home with a week’s worth of arts activities, released every Monday.

Since 2014, this hallmark New Victory program has provided free dance performances and free arts education workshops to more than 4,000 students a year.

New 42 Youth Corps has shaped me in a way that encourages me to help others.”
