Seattle Repertory Theatre wins $20,000 grant for new works

Seattle Repertory Theatre is one of five U.S. theaters awarded a $20,000 grant for commissions, workshops and premieres of new plays and musicals, the National Corporate Theatre Fund has announced. The NCTF distributed the $100,000 from the Ford Foundation to “significant regional theaters” celebrating their 50th anniversaries. Seattle Rep was singled out for its wide range of works performed, and the NCTF noted that the plays of Wendy Wasserstein, Bill Irwin and August Wilson all came out of the theater on their way to Broadway.

The Rep is in good company. Other recipients: Actors Theatre of Louisville (Kentucky), Guthrie Theater (Minneapolis), Hartford Stage (Connecticut) and Trinity Repertory Company (Providence, R.I.)
