$50,000 challenge ends June 30!

Donate today to support theatrical productions and education programs that make joyful memories, inspire imagination and empathy, develop literacy and critical thinking, build confidence and teamwork, and so much more!

May 15 Giving Day Update: We are so grateful for the many generous donations we received to help make the Great Things Happen 24-hour giving marathon a huge success! We exceeded our goal and raised over $28,000 (and counting!) to make the life-changing experience of theatre possible for Bay Area kids!

Your gift helps ensure ALL children have access to the life-changing experience of theatre by:

  • giving over 35,000 students free or low-cost access to theatre through our Arts in Schools programs and special Student Matinee performances
  • supporting after-school musical theatre programs in underserved schools
  • creating new bilingual productions and other groundbreaking works that reflect the needs and interests of Bay Area communities
  • providing free performances of sensory friendly productions for children living with autism and other special needs



Your tax-deductible donation to the Great Things Happen Scholarship Fund supports talented students who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate in our Education Program. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by June 30 to provide student scholarships for classes and camps that:

  • build self-confidence and self-reliance
  • support achieving goals as part of a team
  • foster warm and lasting friendships
  • develop skills that will serve students today and as future leaders!
