Help Us For Kidz Theater provide scholarships during our 2019 season!

Story

 
 
Overview
 
Kidz Theater provides arts education and professional training at costs cheaper than any other in the city. We give $40,000 in scholarships per year to eligible performers between the ages of 8-18. We feel that no willing and talented performer should be turned away from Kidz Theater because of financial burden: performers from all walks of life should be included in our productions, and as the cost of producing in Manhattan skyrockets, we need your help to make this scholarships possible!

Short Summary

Kidz Theater needs your help to provide scholarships for our 2020 season!  We are currently dealing with the skyrocketing costs of production in New York City--while we are looking to raise $15,000--a fraction of the cost of the scholarships we give out per season.  

What We Need & What You Get

Our goal is $15,000 for this season. We provide well over $40,000 in tutition assistance yearly, and as such, this money would be instrumental in providing rehearsal space, renting the theater, props, costumes, set, as well as making sure we can keep mainstage participation for our mentor performers COMPLETELY FREE!

The Impact

Our program serves as a professional training ground for children and teenagers pursuing careers in musical theater and technical theater. Every season, our productions are both performed and technically operated by a VERY talented group of teenagers working both on and off stage. Our performers have gone off to alma maters such as Boston Conservatory, University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), Carnegie Mellon, Pace University, New York University, Elon University, Point Park University, Shenandoah University, among others; and have appeared on Broadway in The Cher Show, Aladdin, Les Miserables, Dear Evan Hansen, The Book of Mormon, Evita, School of Rock, and The Phantom of the Opera; on the West End in Dreamgirls and in National Tours in Newsies, Les Miserables, among others.

Risks & Challenges

The disappearance of Kidz Theater mentorships and scholarships would destroy the mission and purpose of Kidz Theater, and would lead to the disappearance of one of the strongest performing arts educational platforms in the tri-state area.  

If we cannot raise this money, our doors may close.
