For the past ten years our school has been a member of The New Victory Theater. We have had an excellent working relationship with the teaching artists, and the administrative staff. We are all thrilled about being given the opportunity to expose our students to such a wide variety of genres of entertainment. The fact that the performers come from all over the world makes it especially relevant in a diverse city like the one we live in. The workshops we have participated in, both teachers and in-school with students, have been relevant to the shows we have seen, and have given our students the confidence to explore the arts themselves. The in-school workshops are done in a way that makes the children feel special, and the teaching artists set a very supportive, comfortable tone.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I notice that the students are more knowledgeable about genres other than the pop culture they are exposed to on television and radio.

The only thing I would like to see happen that would be an improvement is the way the students are dismissed from the theater. Because so many school groups come out to return to school at the same time, it might be useful to stagger the dismissals a little more.

Intensive outreach to schools in the NYC area is a dimension of the New Victory that I would like to highlight. A corps of teaching artists fans out across the city each day to public schools, immersing lucky classes in mind-opening participatory lessons that multiply the experience when those students bus in to see a show the next week. Demand for the shows by schools is intense, with waiting lists despite the New Vic running several performances a day. The New Vic offers these shows to schools at a nominal ticket price -- a couple of bucks. With arts programs cut to the bone the students are clearly hungry for the fine productions, jumping in their seats with delight and plunging cognitively into the performances. So while the New Vic certainly is a great deal for their public to also see the array of global talent in children's theater, at a very good price, this is the tip of the iceberg for a brilliant institution increasing the dimensionality, aspirations and happiness of our next generation.

I've accompanied the teaching artists to classes to see the outreach in action. And I bring my own kids to the public performances.

Through a friend

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Increase the scope of impact - while the public program is massive and serves many, many kids in many, many performances, demand is still so intense from additional schools performances that there is a waiting list, and the theater simply does not have the capacity to perform for them.

What is its top priority in the long run?

Create a generation of kids with an appreciation of arts that serves their own actualization and leads to a better society.
