Supporting local theater for kids!

Our Sponsors

Thank you to these local businesses helping us cultivate children’s social emotional learning through community centered, socially aware, high quality theater education and performance opportunities. 

Without the philanthropy of our supporters, our high quality musicals for kids would not be possible. To acknowledge the gifts of our supporters, we have added their names here, as well as their ads and warm-wishes to our playbill.
