Photo Flash: Inside the American Theatre Wing's 2018 National Theatre Company Grants Ceremony

The American Theatre Wing recently held its gala honoring the recipients of the 2018 National Theatre Company Grants. Check out the photos below!

This year's four Initial Support recipients are: Cardinal Stage (Bloomington, IN), Flint Repertory Theatre (Flint, MI), Local Theater Company (Boulder, CO), and The Wilbury Theatre Group (Providence, RI). The Second-Time Support grant recipients are the following six companies: Boise Contemporary Theater (Boise, ID), Boston Court Pasadena (Pasadena, CA), New Jersey Repertory Company (Long Branch, NJ), North Carolina Stage Company (Asheville, NC), Red Bull Theater (New York, NY), and Silk Road Rising (Chicago, IL). The prestigious grants totaling $100,000 will be presented on Monday, November 12th at a private event.

"The American Theatre Wing is so proud to be supporting these ten exceptional theatre companies. They are creating outstanding theatrical work in diverse communities large and small all across the country. Through this work they continue the theatre's long tradition of creating dialogue, provoking thought, educating, and bringing people together. We need this now more than ever before," said Heather Hitchens, President of the American Theatre Wing.

The American Theatre Wing has long shown its dedication to not-for-profit theatres through its Theatre Company Grants Program. After many years during which eligibility was restricted to New York City companies, 2010 marked a significant change in the granting of The Wing, resulting from extensive review by the organization's Board of Trustees. The ATW Grants have distributed over $3 million dollars over the past 60 years.

The application period for 2019 grants will open in the summer of next year.
