On June 19, 2023, Arts for Autism will return to the Gershwin Theatre – home of the blockbuster Wicked – for a one-night-only performance. The event offers selected student groups a rare opportunity to step on stage and perform alongside some of the biggest names on Broadway. Together, contemporary stars of the stage and the stars of tomorrow perform and inspire compassion, kindness, and understanding for those impacted by autism. One-hundred percent of the proceeds will be given back to the autism community via the A4A grant program.


Caissie Levy, Broadway star and original Elsa in Disney’s Frozen, will lead the evening’s soloists with a performance of the hit song Let It Go. Additional pieces will be performed by Teal Wicks (The Cher Show, Wicked), Miki Abraham (Shucked, Beautiful, the Carole King Musical), Gabrielle Campo (Some Like It Hot, Beetlejuice), John Michael Dias (Jersey Boys, Beautiful, the Carole King Musical), Tasia Jungbauer (Moulin Rouge, the Musical), Kevin Smith Kirkwood (Kinky Boots, 25th Annual…Spelling Bee), Alyse Alan Louis (Amèlie, Mamma Mia!), Eric William Morris (King Kong, Mamma Mia!), Dylan Paul (Moulin Rouge, the Musical, Cabaret), Tiffany Renee Thompson (Little Shop of Horrors), Josh Strobl (Dear Evan Hansen), Quinn VanAntwerp (Jersey Boys, Shucked), and Brynn Williams (Spongebob Squarepants the Broadway Musical, 13 the Musical). Writer and autistic playwright, theatre artist, filmmaker, arts administrator, and educator Jackson Tucker-Meyer will give the concert’s keynote address. Tickets start at $49 and are on sale at: https://www.artsforautism.net/

Under the stewardship of an advisory board of artists and activists, funds garnered at the concert will be distributed in $1,000 to $5,000 grants designed to help people impacted by autism. Grants are available on a rolling basis and the deadline to apply is October 1, 2023. For more information, visit: https://www.artsforautism.net/
