Let's end this year on a high note! With your help, Church Street School can end this summer with brighter hopes for the future. After an incredibly uncertain year that left us with very real financial challenges, we hope to raise $20,000 by August 31st.


There are several ways to get us there! You can make a direct, tax-deductible donation or choose to purchase and decorate a tile and join our Tile Wall of Fame!

"What does Church Street School represent to you?"


Earlier this year, we asked our community members to respond to the above question. Their responses show many reasons to support all that we do at CSSMA.

Dear Friends,


Today, we are celebrating the first steps towards fully re-opening one of New York City's cultural touchstones. Broadway!


It has been over a year since theaters across New York City were forced to cease operations due to the pandemic. And, while many other industries have been able to begin the re-opening process, Broadway and all theaters across the city have still largely remained closed without a clear indication as to when they would be allowed to re-open. That is until last week when theaters across New York State were opened at 33% capacity.


Many performers took advantage of the re-opening and headed back to the stage that very day, or made plans to do so in the near future at theaters across the state. Last Saturday, two legendary performers participated in the first show on a broadway stage in over a year.

On April 3rd, 2021, Savion Glover and Nathan Lane performed a pop up performance at Broadway's St. James Theater to an audience of 150 frontline workers and volunteers from The Actors Fund and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This performance signifies the first steps towards re-energizing performing arts all over New York. We are so excited for the possibilities, and performances to come!
