Overview

Mission Statement

The Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids program endeavors to broaden the horizons of at-risk youth and foster a lifelong appreciation of performing arts by exposing kids to live, professional theatre.

Background Statement

In its inaugural year, the Theatre for Kids program sent over 2,000 kids to see The Lion King at the Boston Opera House. Since then, over 65,000 children and teens from Greater Boston have attended theater productions and interactive workshops at local theaters as result of this initiative. Renamed The Marilyn Rodman Theatre Program for Kids in 2007 in honor of its founder, this program brings joy and cultural exposure to thousands of children who otherwise would not have access to live theater, and aims to fulfill the Rodmans’ original vision: to have each child in their community have the same opportunities they’d provided for their own children.

Impact Statement

It costs approximately $800 for a family of four to attend a professional theatre production in Boston, if they sit in the balcony, take public transportation, and enjoy one snack and beverage a piece. For the 15.5% of Greater Boston families living in poverty, an outing like this is out of reach. Even for middle class families, $800 is a steep price tag for an afternoon of entertainment. What we realize is that a trip to the theatre and the opportunity to watch a story come to life before your eyes is much more than simply entertainment.

Exposure to the arts offers a fresh perspective to a child. In the most extreme cases, a child might develop a lifelong passion for musicals and plays or even become inspired to pursue a career in the arts. And while most kids won’t pursue the arts themselves, their horizons will be broadened.

The performing arts teach children about the importance of practice and discipline. They are a tangible example of what can be achieved through practice and discipline. They foster creativity and offer kids a chance to escape their reality for a few hours.

Significant populations of youth in Greater Boston do not have access to the theatre. Our goal at Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids is to change that.


Needs Statement

Students who have access to the arts in or out of school tend to have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement, according to a recent study. The study: The Arts and Achievement in At-Risk Youth: Findings from Four Longitudinal Studies reports these and other positive outcomes associated with high levels of arts exposure for youth of low socioeconomic status.

Additional studies have shown that students who attend a live theater performance showed better knowledge of vocabulary words, more tolerance, and improved ability to read others’ emotions when compared to students who did not attend.

Program Short-Term Success  The Marilyn Rodman Theatre Program for Kids (TFK) is working to ensure that all children in the Greater Boston community have access to eye-opening performance art experiences. In collaboration with our network of community groups, we provide low-income, disabled, and otherwise at-risk youth with the chance to experience live professional theater. Each organization agrees to send one (and only one) adult chaperone per five youth, which maximizes the number of children who can go. Exceptions are made for children who need more individualized attention due to developmental or physical disabilities.
Program Long-Term Success 

Students who have access to the arts in or out of school tend to have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement, according to a recent study. The study: The Arts and Achievement in At-Risk Youth: Findings from Four Longitudinal Studies reports these and other positive outcomes associated with high levels of arts exposure for youth of low socioeconomic status.

Additional studies have shown that students who attend a live theater performance showed better knowledge of vocabulary words, more tolerance, and improved ability to read others’ emotions when compared to students who did not attend.
Program Success Monitored By 

We measure success by the number of children we are able to introduce to live theatre productions – a number which has grown steadily since our founding. We also measure success by the number of community partners we reach out to each year, and by the number of enrichment activities we offer young theatergoers in collaboration with our partners for each performance. Finally, and most importantly, we measure our success in opening the worlds and expanding horizons for the youth who participate. We capture this by asking them to tell us about their experience after the event(s).

We will ask those who have received tickets and our partner organizations to complete a brief survey of their experience with the Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids program.

Examples of Program Success  The Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids program sends approximately 3,000 local youth to the theatre each year.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
