A.C.T. Awarded Grants Totaling $750,000 To Support ACTsmart Intensive ResidenciesA.C.T. Awarded Grants Totaling $750,000 To Support ACTsmart Intensive Residencies
by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2018

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) announced today that it has been awarded grants totaling $750,000 over the next five years to support ACTsmart Intensive Residencies, which provide in-depth arts education to youth from systemically marginalized communities at a variety of schools and community sites throughout San Francisco, with a broad focus on providing opportunities for those who have traditionally had limited access to the art of live performance and theater-based arts education. The grant is part of $377 million in new funding support announced recently by San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell and the Department of Children, Youth and Their Families (DCYF) for youth programs over the next five years. The new funding is made possible by Proposition C, a voter-approved initiative which increased the Children and Youth Fund to 4 cents of every $100 of assessed property tax revenue. DCYF administers the fund to community-based organizations that provide services to children, youth, transitional age youth (TAY), and their families, prioritizing the lowest-income neighborhoods where children and youth are likely to have the greatest level of need for services as well as specific populations that would benefit from targeted programming. DCYF received 693 proposals from 248 agencies in response to a request for proposals issued to determine which programs would receive funding. (more...)

World Premiere of HOWERD'S END Explores the Untold Story of Comedy Legend Frankie Howerd
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2017

March 6, 2017 marks the centenary of the birth of a comedy legend: Frankie Howerd, who was and still is "one of Britain's best-loved comedians". A radical, whose courage and innovation as a performer have too often been obscured by cosy nostalgia, he was the first stand-up to dispense with conventional punchlines and slick patter, instead crafting stumbling, surreal streams of insecurity, based on his sense of inadequacy, disappointment and sheer unsuitability to the very job of being a comedian.
