In September 2014, TFA launched an Outreach program in New Hanover County schools and transition programs.
Since then, TFA has provided hundreds of students with disabilities the unique opportunity to explore the performing arts. For many students, this is their only chance to experience the arts.
Teachers are amazed and enthusiastic about how participating in our program benefits their students, both on stage and off.
Back Stage Skills
Through the creative process:
Students co-create and perform unique shows, in professional theaters.
Families celebrate the unique talents of their children.
The wider community experience people with disabilities in a whole new light.
This program is provided at no cost. And even if we say so ourselves, Theatre for All is dearly loved by teachers, students and families!
“Kim has had quite an impact on our students. I've seen some who
are usually quiet, use their voices. Students who don't like
to move, dance. Those who have difficulty with
communicating emotions, express themselves. They shine brightly.
Kim does an amazing job. Her positive spirit, creativity, and love
for what she does is profound. My students have walked away feeling
accomplished, successful, and worthy of praise.“
Janet Hughes, Lead teacher of the Transitions program.

Chris and Kim Henry.
Chris is deaf. He really appreciates it when we learn to sign the final song in our shows.
We're all speaking his language for a change.
