Access to the Arts

Imagine… a vibrant performing arts school in the heart of Worcester’s new theatre district.

Building a great cultural institution takes imagination, leadership, hard work and community support.

Your donation to the Access to the Arts Fund supports the impact of the performing arts on people of diverse backgrounds, age groups, abilities and interests.  Our programs include world class teaching artists, performing arts classes for all ages, expanded summer theatre programs, daytime arts education, master classes with visiting artists and technical theatre apprenticeships.

Our region has been greatly underserved in performing arts education, and we are prepared and excited to fill the need with high caliber education and enrichment opportunities.

Because of your continued support, we are able provide the following community and outreach programs:

Youth Summer Program
Adopt-A-School Program
Student Critics Program
Goddard Scholars Program
Motivational Speakers Program
Sensory-Autism-friendly performance for A Christmas Carol

Your generous contribution today will bring this new conservatory for the performing arts to fruition, and make the arts accessible to all.

Help to make this exciting initiative a success.

“Without a doubt, this weekend has been the highlight of this entire tour for me.  Thank you to South High for putting so much love into what you do.  What a blessing to be a part of this and witness the joy, enthusiasm, and dreams in the hearts of these young people. "
