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 15,000 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
  • Thousands of free or low-cost tickets are distributed to underserved 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.
