The New Victory Theater introduces extraordinary performing artists from around the world to extraordinary audiences in New York City at low ticket prices, bringing kids to the arts and arts to kids. Created in 1995 for young New Yorkers, their families and schoolmates, The New Victory Theater is committed to the intrinsic value of cultural participation in the lives of young people and families. In all New Victory activities, we seek to provide experiences that push boundaries, encourage global thinking and provide lasting memories.





New Vic Usher Corps is a three-year program for New York City youth ages 16-22 that offers:

·         Occasion to see and learn about the culture and inner-workings of live theater from around the world

·         Job training and workshops in building essential and transferable skills

·         Opportunity to be a part of a supportive team of young adults

·         Hands-on work with kids and families in a friendly, fast-paced environment

·         Continual personal and professional growth through the program

New Vic Ushers take on a wide variety of responsibilities bringing them into regular contact with audiences, artists and arts administrators, and their work provides them with a first-hand look at a variety of shows from around the world, strengthening their appreciation of and connection to the performing arts.
