New Rep Receives Foundation for MetroWest Grant

New Repertory Theatre received a $7,500 grant from the Foundation for MetroWest to enhance and support Classic Repertory Company (CRC), its flagship educational outreach program. CRC offers 90-minute adapted performances of two significant classic dramatic works specifically to match school schedules with additional curricular units available alongside performances. Funding will support free performances to underserved schools and senior centers in select MetroWest communities.

"It is with great pleasure that we accept this grant from the Foundation for MetroWest," says New Rep Artistic Director, Jim Petosa. "It is an honor to be acknowledged for our Classic Repertory Company and our commitment to theatre education. On behalf of the entire New Rep family I'd like to thank the Foundation for MetroWest for this award as we continue to provide this important resource to our community."
