Theater Experiences

Right now, we know you can’t travel to see a show — so we’ve brought theater to you!

Project Success
Spotlight Series

While many theaters are closing their doors to prioritize the health and safety of families, our partners (local and beyond) continue creating art that they are excited for you to experience. At Project Success, we hope to shine a light on these amazing opportunities that our theater partners are able to provide — from the stage to your home — and all at no cost to you.
