Madison Youth Arts Center
A Home for Inspiring, Creating, and Connecting
Welcome to this exciting space that will nurture young people’s curiosity, bring together youth from diverse backgrounds, and create community through artistic expression. For more than 50 years, Children’s Theater of Madison and Madison Youth Choirs have separately provided outstanding theater and music experiences for young people. After years of dreaming about deeper collaboration, CTM and MYC are thrilled to be partnering in the development of a permanent home that will serve as a spotlight for creative young people in the heart of Dane County.
The vision: Create a collaborative youth arts center that will:
• Provide opportunities for families from all backgrounds to find kindred spirits as their children cross paths in rehearsals, sparking friendships across geographic and socioeconomic lines.
• Expand opportunities for students and teachers to share in a collaborative environment of shared office spaces, rehearsal halls, common areas, professional services, and a 300-seat theater.
• Remove barriers for participation by building a centrally located facility in close proximity to public transportation.
