Together, we can beat this!
Like many performing arts and educational nonprofits, North Texas Performing Arts relies on income from ticket sales and class tuition to help keep its doors open throughout the year.
The months-long closure due to COVID-19 has had a profound and devastating impact on NTPA’s operating budget and we are asking for your help in rebuilding our NTPA community in the coming months.
As artistic and administrative staff dusts off empty seats and creates a new model for how we’ll work together to share in the spotlight of the stage,
below are 4 ways you can support NTPA during COVID Recovery.
1. Donate to the NTPA Resident Directors Fund
Directly support the work of the directors that you know and love by making a monthly, recurring gift to the NTPA Resident Directors Fund. The NTPA Resident Directors Fund supports operational expenses for resident directors including salaries and insurance.

For many of you and your children, NTPA is your home away from home, the place where you find meaningful connections and where your voice is heard. While things seem uncertain now, one thing we know for certain is that NTPA is here today and we will be here when the dust settles and our theatre community can gather together in celebration once more.
