Theatrical Rights Worldwide Honored By The American Association of Community Theatre
Theatrical Rights Worldwide has been honored with an award from the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT), which was presented at the awards presentation at AACTFest '09 in Tacoma, WA, June 24, 2009.
The Corporate Award is presented to businesses and corporations for significant financial support of community theatre on a regional or national basis.
In 2006, Steve Spiegel proudly launched Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), a musical theatre licensing agency with an array of new business practices and a state-of-the-art online catalog of shows from Broadway and Off-Broadway, plus shows originating in regional theatres and international venues. Steve is an advocate for the arts whose pioneering efforts have nurtured educational, community and professional theatre throughout the world. He received AACT's Distinguished Merit Award in 1996 and lead Music Theatre International to receive AACT awards in 1996 and 2001. His thirty years of experience listening to and learning from community, school, and professional theatres enabled him to found TRW and create practical, customer-friendly products. Theatrical Rights Worldwide quickly became a supporter of community theatre needs and efforts, locally and nationally. TRW was a sponsor of the national AACTFest in Charlotte, NC in 2007 and a major sponsor of the AACT 2008 NYC Convention. TRW's support continues as it was also a supporter of AACTFest Tacoma.
