Apply for General Programs

How to Apply 

Interested in becoming a Variety Family and participating in Variety’s many programs? Participation in our Variety programs, including Adventure Camp, Performing Arts programs, free family events and more, is not based on financial need, but your child must have a medical diagnosis of a physical or developmental disability and you must live in our service area (counties served in Missouri and Illinois shown in the map below).

To apply, please fill out Variety's General Application here – once registered as a Variety Family, you’ll be added to our email list and will receive more information. Note that, if you plan to, or have already, submitted a financial application for assistance with equipment and/or therapy, you will be added to this list as well. There is no need to fill out both applications.

Contact Performing Arts Manager Joy Addler via email for questions about Variety Theatre, Variety Children’s Chorus or Variety Dance. Senior Program Manager Robin Diehl is available to help if you have questions about Adventure Camp or any other programs, or if you would like to submit a general application. Please contact her at 314-720-7717 or via email

The application can be emailed to Robin via email, faxed to 314-731-6866 or mailed to:
