The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts exists to serve the arts and the community. It is home to the Opera San Antonio, Ballet San Antonio, Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, Children’s Chorus of San Antonio and the Classical Music Institute. The center is sustained by philanthropy, grants, commercially driven tours, rentals, events, private engagements, and Tobin Entertainment, generating income that protects the interests of its residents and the community.
During the pandemic, all programming understandably stopped. However, the Tobin remained open and sought innovative opportunities to provide comforting and safe interactions for the community, adhering to its stated mission of "improving the quality of life in San Antonio." Faced with an absence of art, but a desire to create new content, Tobin leadership was led to ask, what else could be done to add to the cultural arts scene? The Tobin is uniquely positioned to start a project that looks at producing content to safeguard our offerings and add to the community. 100A Productions comes out of the desire to be in dialogue with the community, offer opportunities to support existing programming, and add to the cultural fabric of San Antonio and the region.
