Welcome to the online home of the Showcase Arts Foundation! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Dunedin, Florida and Asbury Park NJ.  We empower our youth and communities, strengthening them socially, emotionally, educationally, and economically by creating inclusive opportunities to participate in the performing arts including theater, dramatic and comedic improv, film, writing, and music.


As your local youth in the arts service and advocacy organization, we need you to continue to help us meet the needs and challenges of our youth.

In 2017, you helped us create the first annual Tampa Bay Region, “Rock Your Ride”; sponsor showcase events for young performing artists in Asbury Park; allowed us to sponsor our 3rd annual, Rising Starts Series at the Algonquin Arts Theatre in Manasquan & shared a meal with us at a Chipotle Fundraiser in Sea Girt in addition to launching a comprehensive performing arts initiative and social media campaign to network young artists at risk.
In 2018, we will have the opportunity to work with more young artists and widen our reach to include the Monmouth Arts Teen Festival and mount larger, more inclusive original showcases. We will also be reaching out to colleges to begin an intern program allowing young artists the opportunity to become part of our local arts economy and learn first-hand what goes into the monetization of art.
By gathering energy and resources to fund powerful performing arts experiences, together we will help at risk youth discover the magnitude of their personal potential and keep them immersed in life affirming arts projects.
