Manbites Dog Theater is pleased to announce its first Manbites Dog Theater Fund grants.
We are awarding 25 project grants, totaling $38,150, to support an exciting range of Triangle theater productions being presented by local artists and companies during the 2019-20 season. The recipients include an impressive group of theater creators, ranging from newcomers to established companies.
A call for grant proposals last spring brought in close to 30 applications and inquiries. Applicants who qualified were evaluated by members of a special grants panel who recommended award amounts, which were subsequently approved by the Manbites Dog Theater Board of Directors.
The grants, ranging from $200 to a maximum of $2,500, will help make possible the work of more than 450 individual Triangle theater artists for an estimated total audience of 14,000 across the Triangle counties of Durham, Chatham, Orange, and Wake.
It’s an impressive group of projects, and it speaks to the strength, diversity, and dedication of the Triangle theater community. We’re proud to be supporting all of these artists.
