The cast is on the road…in a NEW TOUR VAN!
The 2023-2024 school tour of Beauty and the Beast has begun and with it comes a company milestone – OFTY has purchased our FIRST EVER tour van. This season’s tour will reach about 70,000 students at 180 performances throughout the Upper Midwest. Students from each school with join the professional cast onstage as the opera chorus and in featured speaking roles. By reaching children in their schools, OFTY removed all barriers that stand between students and quality, live music theater. Through our program, we aim to ignite an enthusiasm for opera in children, and most importantly, a deep love for the arts. You can read more about OFTY’s van purchase on the Van Campaign page. Thank you for considering a gift to Opera for the Young in support of our mission.
