About Tustin Area Council for Fine Arts...
TACFA’s signature program, Broadway in the Park is perfectly aligned with the Council’s mission to develop, showcase and support the arts within the greater Tustin area. This donation will be used to help defray the cost to put on this first class musical production with a professional cast and allow the ticket price to remain low and family friendly. A portion of the donation will help fund the "Creating Community Art" program offered in TUSD Schools.
