Because happy shouldn’t be for just an hour

Hopping into the New Year with Dallas Children’s Theater

We love Dallas Children’s Theater! What better way for the kids in our programs to start a new year than by experiencing the magic of live theater. The youngsters in our programs will get to attend a performance of the Broadway hit A Year with Frog and Toad, which runs from January 29 through February 28, 2016.

Dallas Children’s Theater does some incredible stuff. They are dedicated to challenging and inspiring children to explore their individual creativity through theater. In addition to several family-oriented live performances each year, they offer developmentally age-appropriate classes, and even have special programs for children with sensory processing disorders such as autism.

This is such a great opportunity for our kids! Many of them would never be able to experience the life-changing magic of live theater without a little help, and we are grateful to DCT for giving our kids this opportunity. They’re also collecting books and blankets for our little ones, and reserving a portion of donations from patrons who attend A Year with Frog and Toad for HCC!

Please show these wonderful folks your support and come out to see …
