For three decades, TADA! has afforded young people from all racial, economic and social backgrounds the opportunity to explore and perform musical theater together in an educational, supportive, and professional environment. Key programs include:

- The RESIDENT YOUTH ENSEMBLE; a completely free year-round pre-professional training, performing and youth development program for 70-80 kids ages 8-18;
- Renowned in- and after-school ARTS EDUCATION RESIDENCIES that enhance curriculum and community ideals at schools and community centers;
- On-site theater CLASSES AND CAMPS for children ages 2 to 14, taught by seasoned theater teaching artists, for which need-based SCHOLARSHIPS are provided to 20% of participants.
TADA!’s mission is two-fold: to present high-quality musical theater productions performed by talented kids for family audiences; and to provide a safe, creative and nurturing place where kids can harness their inherent energy, build their self-esteem and realize their true potential through the unique collaborative art form that is musical theater. Young people gain confidence and learn commitment, responsibility, communication, and teamwork—skills that are critical to their success in both school and life.
