Good Theater Receives Grants

Good Theater, the professional theater company in residence at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, has received two grants to assist with its current season. A grant from the Maine Community Foundation Theater Fund and a grant from the Sam L. Cohen Foundation will be used to help pay Maine actors during the season.

Good Theater is currently the largest employer of Maine actors in the state. This year more than 40 roles will be filled by Maine actors. The company, which is celebrating its 17th season this year, will pay more than $100,000 during the season to Maine artists for their work with the company.

Good Theater is extremely proud to employ so many fine actors from southern Maine who bring their craft to the St. Lawrence stage. The opening production of the season, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time featured eight Maine-based actors, and the closing production, the musical, Lucky Stiff, has a cast of ten, with nine of the actors being from Maine.

In between the company presents Homer Bound with a cast of six, An Act of God featuring three performers, A Doll's House Part 2 with four actors, plus the company's Second Stage series: Love, Loss and What I Wore (five cast members), and The Irish Curse (five cast members).

Good Theater is incredibly grateful to the Maine Community Foundation and the Sam L. Cohen Foundation for their ongoing support of the company and theater in Maine. Support from foundations such as these makes the company stronger and provides many opportunities for Maine artists.
