Since its founding in 1984, TADA! has been the leading producer of professional-quality youth theater in New York City. TADA!'s mission is to offer any NYC child, with an interest or talent in theater, the opportunity to partake in professionally directed productions, staged readings, in-school/after-school arts education programs, and classes.

TADA! is a multi-faceted and multi-cultural organization that emphasizes diversity in all areas of its operations. We offer a subsidized ticket program for mainstage shows; arts education in a wide variety of schools in low-income communities in all five boroughs; maintain a free training/youth development program for NYC kids ages 8-18, and offer teens the opportunity to critique, perform in and be audience members for a playwriting contest and reading series. The children we serve, the programs we develop, our audience members and our staff fully represent the diversity and vitality of New York City.

TADA! kids develop their imagination, talent, self-esteem, concentration, discipline, teamwork, public speaking ability and vocabulary in a fun, safe and stimulating environment. Mainstage productions are selected with the belief that quality children's theater, based on relevant themes can teach children about themselves and their world.
