YADA has been a musical theatre home to our stellar kids for 23 years. Your donation will help cover the unchanged overhead costs during this challenging time & will help keep YADA’s doors open for future generations.
To our incredible YADA Community,
YADA has been providing not just a stage, but a safe space for kids to find and share their voices for the past 23 years. Because of Covid-19, we now need your help to make sure we can continue providing that home for many years to come.
YADA is known for our dedication to high quality productions for our students and families. The majority of what comes into YADA gets invested right back into our productions. YADA also provides over $120,000 in scholarships each year to hundreds of students who cannot afford to come to YADA. Even though we were able to create an online platform back in March, it cannot replicate our in-person numbers nor our ticket sales. At the same time, our overhead expenses have not changed. We continue to pay salaries and benefits for our staff, pay full rent on three shuttered locations, and continue to pay all of the other expenses associated with running a children's theatre school. Now we also have added online expenses such as an editing and audio production team. YADA has also continued to provide scholarships to children in need during the pandemic.
We've been doing everything in our power to stay afloat and YADA is incredibly proud of the work we do, along with innovations and adaptations we've been able to make during this challenging time. However, we are not invincible. And without help from you, we may not make it to the other side.
If you are able to help, all of us who have been connected to the YADA community in so many ways for so many years will be eternally grateful! Most importantly, YADA will be able to offer the uplifting magic of musical theatre to children everywhere for years to come!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
