As a longtime supporter of Shea’s Performing Arts Center, M&T Bank is our exclusive sponsor for our 2021-2022 Broadway Series that kicks off on September 10th with Frozen.
M&T’s partnership is vital in the work we do. Cultural enrichment enhances one’s quality of life. Not only are we entertained, but we are introduced to new situations and cultures through live theatre. In today’s world of increasing isolation and greater reliance on technology in our daily interactions, this real-life bond becomes more significant, especially to youth. Studies indicate that children who participate in the arts do better in school including subjects such as science, math and technology. They also exhibit higher self-esteem and contribute to their community in a positive way. Through live performances, we learn empathy, communication, and collaboration. The audience connects with the characters and other audience members as everyone is taken on a journey that often mimics real-life events.
With M&T’s support it continues to help ensure that the people of Western New York are offered the highest quality musical theatre – Touring Broadway.
