Mission

RTA uses the transformative power of the arts to help people in prison develop skills to unlock their potential and succeed in the larger community.

What We Do

For the past 24 years, RTA has brought highly immersive, "behind-the-walls", theater-arts programs to maximum-security prisons such as Sing Sing in NY and transformed many lives and families in the process. RTA alumni have a recidivism rate of 7%, far below the national average of 60%, which is the basis of an academic study that RTA is currently exploring with Duke University.
