THANK YOU TO OUR 2019 SHOW SPONSORS

"This event to me is special because it shows that there isn't one way to tell a story. The power of song. The power of dance. It has a farther reach than just entertainment. We can do something. We can do something really important."


- Kelvin Moon Loh, The King and I & Spongebob

WHAT IS ARTS FOR AUTISM

STARS FROM THE FOLLOWING HIT SHOWS HAVE PARTICIPATED IN ARTS FOR AUTISM

Arts for Autism is a one night annual Broadway benefit concert where the biggest names on Broadway join performing arts students from around the country onstage at the Gershwin Theatre (home to Broadway's production of Wicked). We are excited to welcome back Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara (The King and I) as she hosts the show for the third time. Also headlining this year's show is O'Hara's Kiss Me, Kate co-star Tony Award nominee and Nashville TV show superstar Will Chase. Joining O'Hara, Chase and 100s of students will be over 25 of the biggest names on Broadway. 


Together they'll perform, spread awareness, and inspire compassion, kindness, and understanding for those affected by autism. This year will mark the fourth annual benefit concert with 100% of the ticket sale proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks. To date, the show has raised $120,000 for Autism Speaks. We are looking forward to another exciting and impactful event this June!
