Inspirational Performance for Students

The Theater at the 14th Street Y
2019-2020 Season

“Ever since I was a child, I can remember sitting in the theater, waiting as the lights go down for the magic to start. From the age of two our mother would schlep us to see new worlds and experience foreign types of movement, sounds and music. She believed in exposing us to all parts of our imagination, building paths towards new unknowns.”
— Ronit Muszkatblit,
Senior Director for Arts + Culture + LABA

For its 2019-2020 season, the Theater at the 14th Street Y is hosting morning school performances for select productions to bring that magic to all ages. From elementary age puppet performances to stirring, historical one woman shows for older students, we have a robust season of educational and magical programming.
