In early December, we received the great news that we were one of four theaters to receive a Theatre Enrichment Grant from The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation.
In his letter, Executive Director Mark Dederer wrote: Your production of "Bee-Luther-Hatchee" exemplifies excellent artistic content that promotes important conversations around timely social issues", noting that "the broad community outreach and audience engagement plan ... was especially exciting considering the size of your organization."
This comes as especially gratifying news in that it directly acknowledges the heart of our mission - to offer our audience greater access to each stage production in our season with community engagement events and in our lobby displays. In the case of Bee-Luther-Hatchee, the themes of race and diversity come at a particularly important moment in the national discourse.
We congratulate the other second round 2016 Theatre Enrichment Grant recipients: Geffen Playhouse (Actually), ACT Theatre (Tribes) and Center Theatre Group (Zoot Suit).
