“Without the arts, our community would be lacking one of the things that make us human. The Z is our gateway to bring arts and music to our area.”
Now, more than ever, we need the connections that the arts enable. It’s in these connections that our humanity shines through. It’s in these connections that we place our hope for the future. A gift in any amount today protects The Z for future generations.
Everything The Z is, everything The Z does, happens because people like you say yes. You are The Z! Say YES to The Z today and make your 100% tax deductible donation.
Your contribution provides critical revenue that directly supports the relentless pursuit of our mission. A mission to ENTERTAIN, EDUCATE, and INSPIRE our community through the performing arts.
Each year, The Z’s Mainstage series brings a spectacular array of performing artists to your doorstep. Just outside the mainstage spotlight, though, there is vital mission driven work being done:
- Over 18,000 schoolchildren experience the power of live performing arts through The Z’s SchoolTime Performance Series;
- The Z’s Teen Ambassadors take an in-depth journey behind the scenes, while honing their writing skills, and giving back to the community in this FREE season-long program;
- The Page to Stage initiative at Keith Middle School brings literature to life in immersive arts integration classroom experience for hundreds of sixth graders
- The new Lights Up! Musical Theatre Camp gives 50 local children the opportunity to sing, dance, act, participate in workshops, rehearse and perform right here at The Z
- Thousands of free or low-cost tickets are distributed to under served populations in our community through Arts Access and the Card-to-Culture program.
The Zeiterion is more than a place for entertainment. It is a source of inspiration. It is an open-invitation to the greatest artists in the nation and the world to come to New Bedford.
Thank you for your time, your consideration, and your support. Most of all, thank you for believing in The Z!
