Family Nights At the Center

As part of our continued commitment to engage our communities and diversify our audiences, the Center has offered a program called Family Nights at the Center, since 2010. This outreach program engages at-risk families in targeted neighborhoods to attend theatre together at least twice throughout the Broadway Season. These experiences include orchestra level seating for the show, a post-performance reception and an opportunity to meet the cast & crew of the show.


How to Participate in the Program

Through this program, we select a community-based organization that assists us in inviting families from their specific neighborhoods to participate. Some of our past participants include:

  • Coalition for Youth, Children and Families
  • Hmong American Friendship Association
  • Dominican Center for Women
  • Hmong American Peace Academy
  • Journey House
  • The Burmese Immersion Project
  • Latino Community Center
  • United Community Center

This year’s select community based organization is:

COA Youth & Family Centers

Over 100 guests of families from this organization will be joining us this season for both The Sound of Music and Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
