What We Do:

  1. Comprehensive Theatre Education: TFA offers an extensive theater education program, equipping our members with a diverse range of performance arts skills.

  2. High-Quality Productions: We create exceptional plays (and short films) that captivate and entertain the public, showcasing the talents and passion of our members.

  3. Classroom Outreach: Our program began with outreach into New Hanover County Schools and this remains a cornerstone of our mission. We bring theatrical education into classrooms serving students with disabilities and produce yearly school performances. 

  4. Community Building: We foster a vibrant and supportive community for our members, their families, and educators, nurturing personal growth and connections. We facilitate social integration for our members through community visibility and interaction.

  5. Vocational Rehabilitation: As an official Vocational Rehabilitation Vendor, we provide specialized training and employment opportunities in the arts, enhancing the accessibility of creative careers.

  6. Belief in the Power of Theatre: TFA firmly believes in the transformative power of theatre to drive positive change for individuals and communities. We are committed to expanding access to the arts for the health and flourishing of people with disabilities.

At TFA, we believe that life becomes more fulfilling when we unite to play, laugh, explore, express, sing, and dance together!

Our Story

Theatre for All was born out of a realization that people with disabilities who were passionate about theatre had very little access to the arts. This had to change.

So in 2014 Kim Henry, Dylan Patterson, and Gina Gambony established TFA, following a semester of successful outreach work at Laney High School. 

A registered 501(c)(3) non profit company, TFA continues to grow. Since inception, TFA has tripled membership, doubled performances, and created a dance company, a choir, and a Leadership program offering employment opportunities for our members. We continue to expand our Outreach Program, bringing arts into schools for students with disabilities at no cost.

TFA is not affiliated to any religious denomination or political party and holds the freedom of creative exploration as a precious tenet of the creative process. The TFA Companies are age 18+ and reserve the right to explore a wide range of issues and ideas.
