For over three decades, TADA! has provided 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. 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 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.
