Theatre for ALL!

To do all that we do, we need you.
TDF is expanding access to live theatre and making performing arts accessible by removing cultural, physical and financial barriers. 


Every year TDF provides nearly 16,000 discounted tickets to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities through our TDF Accessibility Programs. These individuals are families, students, repeat offenders and first time theatregoers. They are like all of us who love theatre and deserve the opportunity to experience live performance in an accepting environment– something many us take for granted.

“People with disabilities are often underserved by our arts organizations, and TDF has worked very hard to provide programs accessible to those with disabilities. Their work continues to send a strong message that all students and teachers, regardless of physical ability, can benefit from the profound lessons of live theater productions.”

– Anna Andrews, High School English Teacher in TDF Accessibility Program for Students at American School for the Deaf
