2019 Collaborative Grants
Grants will be announced April 1, 2019
From Page to Stage with Forward Theater Company (3 year grant)
Forward Theater brings the written word of plays to audiences through performances of locally-produced monologues and Play Clubs. During the monologue performances, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss contemporary social, economic, racial, and cultural issues that these monologues have been written to address, through familiar subjects such as love, food, community, and censorship. Play Club is part book club, part performance experience. This program presents the opportunity to explore a play in depth through guided discussion, performance of scenes, and discussion with directors and actors. Participants will gain a new perspective on what makes a play work and how it is brought to life on stage.
