TCT Lives off the Support of Generous Sponsors and Donors Like You!

Tuscaloosa Children's Theatre was organized in 1986 to educate and expose Tuscaloosa and surrounding counties to all aspects of stage performing and production. The organization was founded by a group of parents, educators and theatre professionals who saw a need for talented, creative children to have the opportunity to perform.

From this small beginning TCT has grown tremendously, providing acting and backstage opportunities for hundreds of children each year.

It costs TCT between $25,000 and $35,000 to put on a show. School shows and ticket sales help with these costs, but we rely on donations from businesses and personal donors to enable us to continue bringing the quality of shows we are able to perform. Please consider TCT when making donations this year. Thanks!
