CATA’s 30th Anniversary Gala & Annual Performance


Gala Evening: Saturday, May 11, 2024 @ 5pm

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 events of the year.”

2023: “Finding New Rhythms”

2022: “AND” (virtual)

2021: “Artistic Liberties” (virtual)

2020: “Art on My Sleeve” (virtual)
