We have been members of the New Vic for the past few seasons and have LOVED every show we have seen. The performaces are engaging, stimulating, fun and speak to children at their level. My 7yo son often asks "when is our next show at the New Victory." His favorites in recent years were Mayayuma, Flaming Idiots and The Man Who Planted Trees. It is so wonderful that the shows are affordable - and a great reason to become a member is to get discounts on tickets. We can't wait for The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy!

Have even more schools be eligible to participate in workshops and attend performances.
