Michelle Catania Tribute

Michelle Catania Children’s Theater Program

Michelle has enriched so many lives. As a group of family and friends, we want to create a legacy befitting her name. We are creating the Michelle Catania Children’s Theater Program, a theater arts program for children and teens in partnership with Center Players, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit resident community theater company in Freehold, NJ, whose stage has become a second home to Michelle.

The mission of the Michelle Catania Children’s Theater Program is to provide opportunities for children and adults to become involved in the community through theater arts that entertain, educate and provide opportunities for scholarships for higher education.

Often, people are only able to honor their loved ones after they are no longer here. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to discuss these ideas with Michelle and get her input. She was delighted with the concept of a children’s theater program in the theater that she loved. As someone who found an outlet in theater as a young person and the recipient of a scholarship that allowed her to continue her studies, she is glad her name will forever be tied to programs that will positively impact young people’s lives.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message. We hope you will be a part of this beautiful tribute to an amazing person.
