Give a Kid a Seat is your opportunity to Give a Kid an Adventure, a New Perspective, and a Place to Dream

Each year, Broadway Dallas raises funds to provide thousands of students from underserved neighborhoods free tickets to attend Broadway shows with accompanying engagement activities. For many of them, it is their very first time in a theater.

The highlight of the year is a dedicated performance for Dallas ISD students who fill the Music Hall at Fair Park after participating in eight sessions of STEM-based curriculum taught by Broadway Dallas teaching artists. Here is a short video showcasing what those students experienced in December 2021 for HAMILTON.

In 2022, Dallas ISD Day will take place in September at the start of the school year. Once again, 3,400 high school juniors and seniors will learn STEM technology infused with the arts— this time with a production rooted in the Civil Rights era and performed by a cast whose diversity mirrors the student body. With your help, 3,400 Dallas ISD students will see AIN’T TOO PROUD: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS on September 14, 2022 at the Music Hall at Fair Park.


• $100 will underwrite the cost of a seat for one student.
• $500 will support five students.
• $1,000 will give seats to 10 students.
• $3,000 will make it possible for an entire class to discover the magic of live theater together.

As a thank you for your contribution at any of the above levels, you will be invited to Cheers for a Cause, a celebratory cocktail reception on September 21, 2022 where we will applaud the success of Dallas ISD Day and hear from a few students about their experience. At the $3,000 donation level, you will also be invited to attend the Dallas ISD Day Funder’s Luncheon on September 14, 2022, and watch the students enter the Music Hall.
