Galleria Dallas has a strong commitment to supporting the arts and arts education in North Texas, and in August, it will partner with Broadway Dallas to share the impact of live musical theater as it asks North Texans to help “Give A Kid A Seat,” through a vivid display at the center. The installation, located on the Gallery Wall on Level 1 across from Sephora, will be supported by a full month of activities celebrating Broadway Dallas.
In partnership with Broadway Across America, Broadway Dallas presents the best of Broadway year-round to more than 300,000 diverse audience members and serves more than 40,000 people by spreading the spirit of Broadway to all corners of our community through multi-generational education and community outreach initiatives. Key among these is Give A Kid A Seat, which will be celebrated all month at Galleria Dallas. With Give A Kid A Seat, Broadway Dallas raises funds to provide thousands of students from underserved neighborhoods free tickets to attend Broadway shows with accompanying engagement activities.
The colorful Gallery Wall will share the history of Broadway Dallas’ Give A Kid A Seat program and will invite donors to share the joy of live theater via a QR code that supports a donation platform.
Free events at the Gallery Wall include:
- Performances from Broadway Dallas’ High School Musical Theatre Awards students on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 11:30 a.m. and on Sunday, Aug. 7 at 1 p.m. in front of the wall.
- A teaching artists workshop centered around the upcoming production of Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 11 a.m. in front of the wall.
