Thanks to everyone who made our 25th Anniversary Gala and Annual Performance a huge success! YOU make our CATA artists shine!


CATA’s signature public event, the Gala and Annual Performance is the culmination of hundreds of performing arts workshops and a celebration of the tremendous artistry of people with disabilities. Hosted at Shakespeare & Company’s Tina Packer Playhouse, the event is a powerful demonstration of community and inclusion —“one of the most joyous and inspiring events of the year.”
