Chocolate Crush

Chocolate Crush is our signature fundraising event that raises essential funds for our innovative disability access, scholarship, and outreach programs.  One of the key attractions of the Chocolate Crush is of course the chocolate!  We were thrilled to  showcase the delectable and decadent chocolate creations of the following artisans:  AG Chocolates of Jackson, Bab’s Underground Lounge, Jefferson Cakery and Market, Mindo Chocolate Makers, and Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory of Ann Arbor.  

This year, thanks to the generosity of many donors, we offered a tantalizing array of experiences, goods, and services that makes supporting and contributing to our cause of providing the very best in theater for children and family audiences even more fun! We urge you to support these generous and delicious area businesses year round–like them on Facebook, visit their website or storefront, and buy their goods and services!
