Gala and Annual
Performance

[

“Be prepared to have your heart blown wide open!”

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.”

 

In 2020 and 2021, CATA presented two vibrant, electrifying virtual galas—each drawing more than 2,000 viewers online each year. Watch the full replays below.

2021 Virtual Gala: “Artistic Liberties”

2020 Virtual Gala: “Art on My Sleeve”

2019 Annual Performance: “NEXUS”
