Each year, through this fund we are able to provide more than 4,000 tickets to families and children. This program provides free tickets to our partner community groups and they in turn distribute them to families, children and seniors who otherwise could not afford to see a show. This is one important way that we serve our community and keep the power of live theater accessible to more people. Thank you for fostering an equitable arts community in which all youth have access to exhilarating performances!

Pay It Forward

During the Holidays at The 5th Avenue Theatre, families, children, and theater lovers walk through our doors to share the joy of music, dance, and storytelling that lifts us up and unites us in the spirit of giving. It is a season to give thanks not just for wonderful experiences of stunning performances, but for what we are able to share with those around us.

In that spirit, we'd like to thank you for making The 5th Avenue Theatre a part of your life. We are thankful that you join us for performances, because it is a joy to share the magic of musical theater with you.

At The 5th, we are committed to sharing the art form we love with a diverse and inclusive community of youth and families. Each year, thanks to the support of donors like you, we are able to provide more than 4,000 children and families in our community with free tickets to our productions through our Pay It Forward campaign. For many of these children and families, the free performance at The 5th will be their first experience of live musical theater. It will be their first time hearing the sounds of a full live orchestra and powerful voices, and their first time being swept up in the stories and perspectives of characters that come to life on stage.

We ask for your support of our Pay It Forward campaign because the future of our community will be determined by the creativity of its youth. Musical theater is uniquely able to inspire hope, spread the joy of self-expression, and show young people the power of collaboration on a large scale. We believe that fostering an equitable arts community in which all youth have access to exhilarating performances will help create a future in which everyone has a vision and a voice.

Your generous support today will create shared memories and bring the magic of musical theater to families. As you spend time with family and friends this holiday season, we hope that you will also take a moment to share the spirit of the season by giving the gift of theater.
