The 5th Avenue Theatre believes that the arts are fundamental to a rich life and we want to be sure that young people have access to theatrical performances. When Matilda the Musical composer Tim Minchin visited Seattle recently, we asked him about why he thinks the arts are important for children. Hear what he says:
This is a topic near and dear to us at The 5th. We serve more than 74,000 young people annually through our education programs. In addition, we offer thousands of free and discounted tickets to young people and families who otherwise would not be able to afford a show. Donations to The 5th help support these efforts.
