Children’s Theater Awarded $5,000

July 21, 2022

Recently, the New York State Council on the Arts awarded $5,000 to Mercy in support of our Children’s Theater program. Children’s Theater, held in Mercy’s Dismas Center for the Performing Arts, is a long-standing tradition in which middle schoolers perform musicals to hundreds of primary and elementary schools in our area. Production and direction are provided by high school students who are a part of Mercy’s drama program. Mercy was one of 61 other nonprofit and community organizations that were awarded a total of $296,730 for arts programming as a result of a new partnership between Rochester Area Community Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts. Well done!
