What’s New

Year in Review

From protecting the beauty of the historic New Victory Theater for generations to come to expanding our reach to new audiences and strengthening our mission with initiatives focused on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging—catch up on all the exciting projects we’ve been working on this past year.


As part of a cultural nonprofit that believes access to the arts are a right for everyone that begins at birth, New Victory set out to prove that the creativity and collaboration we see at the theater and in the classroom is directly linked to meaningful arts engagement in kids’ lives.

“New 42 Youth Corps has shaped me in a way that encourages me to help others.”
