TADA! Summer Camp


Wow…what a year! A lot has changed in America since the fall of last year and there have been a lot of changes at TADA! as well. This was another triumphant year artistically; I am proud of the productions and the Ensemble Members who took part in them or in special events and other Resident Youth Ensemble Programs. I am also proud of TADA!’s Education Programs and the vast number of students that we are impacting. Thank you to my new partner, Executive Director, Rod Christensen and TADA!’s Board of Directors, as well as TADA!’s staff for helping make this year a success. Our first production, The History Mystery, was a musical I first wrote in 1995. The world for kids is very different now from back then so I decided I would do some rewriting of it over the early fall of 2016 thinking the presidential election would go a certain way. When it didn’t go that way I went back to the computer and rewrote again. I can’t tell you how much of an impact that election had on our kids. I was glad that TADA! was a safe place for Ensemble Members to talk about their feelings. I knew that we needed to do more so we started a new post-show program called Community Talks. We brought in guests who could answer questions from both cast members and the audience about how to get involved and make a difference in our communities: to spread tolerance, freedom, and justice for all people. As it is talked and sung about in the show – “All men and women and all races are created equal...right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” There are still more conversations to be had and so we decided to save the set, props, and costumes so that we could remount the show this fall. This allowed us to start a four-show season at less of a cost than mounting four new productions. Also, last year I was able to focus on commissioning some new work which you will read about later in this report. I’m very excited about these projects and believe that they will have a life beyond TADA!. They are geared to an older audience of pre-teens, teens, and adults. TADA! has so many musicals in our repertoire that are geared toward audience of children ages 3 - 12 and their parents. We only have a couple of musicals that are for pre-teens and up so it’s exciting to be able to add more musicals for that age range and that deal with some more serious issues on teens’ minds today. Change can be hard -- it’s also good especially for an organization that’s been around over 33 years.

Janine Nina Trevens Producing Artistic Director


My first year as TADA!’s Executive Director was, of course, full of new learning. As I worked alongside Nina, a key focus was to articulate together the core foundations of TADA!. Additionally, we’ve taken our first year to fully acclimate to our new roles and responsibilities as Producing Artistic Director and Executive Director. Our partnership has been and is extremely successful and I feel very fortunate to be working with Nina in this new capacity. I’m also thankful to be working with an organization that shares my passion and belief in “providing young people from different backgrounds with musical theater programs that inspires them to be creative, learn, and think differently.” At the heart of what we do at TADA! is the telling of stories. In our education programs, we encourage children & teens to pen and present co-created and unique stories...stories that inspire. In our main stage productions our professional writers, creative teams, and young actors create stories that challenge, provoke; stories that celebrate diversity, the highs and lows of personal journeys, and everything in between. Launching into this new year, we anticipate new growth and great opportunities, and as Executive Director, I will continue to focus on the health and wealth of TADA! so we can continue to develop and tell our stories. 2016-2017 was a year of planning as well as setting the stage for a great, successful future, and 2017-2018 will, I believe, be a year in which to see some fruits of this planning. I very much look forward to leading and supporting us through new changes aimed to improve existing policies and procedures to reflect what is best and relevant as we move forward to an advanced future. “TADA! Here We Are” and here we plan to stay!

A time-travel adventure that introduces Martin Luther King Jr, Eleanor Roosevelt, and others as kids. This piece has was rewritten in response to the 2016 election to help families discuss some of the challenges that people face today, including racism, women’s fight for equality, and acceptance of other’s differences. This musical explores the idea that when we understand and learn from both the negative experiences of our history as well as the action taken in the past to effect positive change we can create a better future for ourselves. As the characters come to realize, “It’s up to you and me to make history.” “For school-age kids living in today’s difficult political climate, it’s a fun but fact-packed look at how every person, even a child, has the ability to affect positive change.” - Mommy Poppins

Community Talks:

Community Talks was a new initiative at TADA! in 2017. They were launched to open a dialogue with young people about current events and social issues. The purpose was to provide a safe space in which audiences of children, teens, parents, and other adults could ask questions openly and honestly to individuals working on the front lines of some of society’s most contested debates. The discussions took place after performances and were led by Producing Artistic Director Janine Nina Trevens along with the show’s casts and artists and the community leaders who spoke to the themes of the production. 2017 speakers include:

Aurora Barnes (Founder of GirlsTalk/GuysTalk and member of Justice League NYC)

Camonghne Felix (Speechwriter/Deputy Press Secretary to Governor Cuomo)

Robert Jackson (Former member of the New York City Council and candidate for NY State Senate)

Julia Sharpe-Levine (Associate Director of the African American Policy Forum)

Originally produced in FY2000, this was an original musical about a girl named Tess whose life changes when she moves from the Missouri to Manhattan and tries to fit in with her new friends without losing herself. Tess learns that just as New York City is a melting pot of diverse backgrounds, what makes her special is the combination of who she was in Missouri and who she’s becoming in New York City. New York, New Year’s director Christina Franklin, a RYE Alum, rewrote the book to include aspects of social media and technology available to kids in 2017. Christina recently graduated from UArts with a major in Director, Playwriting, and Production. Following some performances, the cast and creative staff led talkbacks with the audience to discuss the themes of the show, focusing on peer pressure in the time of social media. “New York, New Year -- like the city it takes place in and celebrates -- is alive with energy, diversity, and excitement!” - NiteLife Exchange

Other highlights from FY17 • • • • •

Jordan Peele, Emmy Award winner and TADA! alum, joined our Board of Directors. We exceeded our Box Office goal and brought in 13.5% more than initially budgeted. Our work to reduce debt continued to great success with a reduction of 20%. Thanks to the generous support from our community, Individual and Event Giving increased by 32.8%. We continued our commitment to new works and voices by commissioning four new musicals. 1. Common Ground – Written by Lisa Diana Shapiro, playwright and longtime volunteer at the International Rescue Committee’s Refugee Youth Program, and composer Georgia Stitt. Teens from the refugee youth program shared their stories and, and during workshops with teen RYE members, began to dramatize them. The resulting material, along with private interviews conducted by Lisa, will be shaped into a new musical. 2. Because They’re Girls – Concept and created by Janine Nina Trevens, Producing Artistic Director, and Erin Williams, a Program Officer at the International Women’s Health Coalition. Written by RYE Alum Christina Franklin. Female teen members have met with them to discuss topics such as street harassment, dating assault, body image, sex roles, and stereotypes. The discussions in these meetings will be the basis for the musical’s narrative. 3. Game Show – Written by RYE Alum Christina Franklin. Music & Lyrics by Matthew Gregory. In this new musical taking on the notion of of collaboration, The Impossible Show is a TV game show that was created for and by kids. Contestants have various physical and mental challenges and must learn how to work together in order to win the game. 4. It’s Not Me, It’s Anxiety - Written by Janine Nina Trevens. In response to Nina’s observations of anxiety in teenagers, which has been increasing over the last 5-10 years, she is beginning researching for this new musical which will feature Anxiety as a character.
