101 Stories: ArtsWave

By The Children's Theatre

Celebrate TCT’s 101st season as it comes to a close as we applaud and appreciate those who contributed to the organization’s magic throughout our century-long journey.  During 10 weeks of recognition, we honor individuals who have been instrumental in the success of TCT, and who have not only helped TCT grow in mission, but also thrive, thanks to their passion.  It is these people and their moments in our history that shaped TCT to become what it is today. We encourage you to consider giving a gift in their honor to ensure the sustainability of TCT’s mission for the next 100+ years.  

ArtsWave is the engine for Greater Cincinnati’s arts. Through gifts from tens of thousands of individuals and companies each year, ArtsWave funds and supports 100+ arts projects and organizations through impact-based grants. Those projects and organizations create a wave of arts that connect our region and make it vibrant.

Alecia Kintner is the President and CEO of ArtsWave, the nation’s oldest and largest community campaign for the arts and the Cincinnati region’s arts council.

Ms. Kintner said: “ArtsWave has been a long-time funder of the Children’s Theatre here in Cincinnati. I am proud that we have had so many years together with this incredible organization.”

She continues: “We see evidence every year of The Children’s Theatre sparking imagination within children. They give these kids a window to a whole new world. They have a large footprint in terms of impacting and fueling creativity and learning across the region.”

“The Children’s Theatre has shown much resilience within this global pandemic. They have adapted into this new, digital environment, and continue to change children’s lives through theatre. My children and I love seeing the shows at the Children’s Theatre.”
