Envisioning the Future of Theater for Young Audiences

Recognizing the benefits of theater experiences in developing creative, adept, and resilient young people, the National Endowment for the Arts is releasing Envisioning the Future of Theater for Young Audiences. While the country copes with the ravages of COVID-19 and begins to think about what a post-pandemic world might look like, it is worth considering how best to shape a sustainable future for the field of theater for young audiences (TYA).

This report was prepared in partnership with the national association Theatre for Young Audiences/USA (TYA/USA). It follows a June 2019 meeting convened by the Arts Endowment, TYA/USA, and Theatre Communications Group to tackle some of the structural and societal challenges facing the field and consider ways to overcome those challenges.
