Help TDF hit our spring fundraising goal by June 30! Donate today to support performing arts access for all.


TDF offers a number of opportunities for educators and administrators to expand their knowledge in the arts.

TDF Teacher Seminars

If you're looking to expand your arts teaching skills, consider enrolling in one of TDF's theatre education courses offered through the NYC Department of Education's After School Professional Development Program. Teachers can earn professional credits along the way (P-credits and CTLE hours), get to see a free show and receive a complimentary one-year membership to TDF.

Commercial Theater Institute

Committed to the development and training of emerging producers, the Commercial Theater Institute provides resources and guidance to individuals interested in the various paths one can take towards creating commercial productions for the stage.

Access Symposium

In 2017, TDF hosted an accessibility symposium to facilitate a dialogue with non-profit theatres in New York City on meeting the needs of the community. This event was made possible through funding from the Department of Cultural Affairs.
