WAYS TO SUPPORT ORBIT THEATRICAL

Orbit Theatrical is the 501(c)(3) non-profit umbrella Orbit Arts Academy operates under and the financial bedrock.

Over the course of the last ten years, Orbit has built an incredible training ground for students of all ages. Many of Orbit students have gone on to pursue musical theater, acting, dance and technical theater programs in college and worked professionally. For Orbit to continue to inspire the next generation of professional performers they need our financial support.
