Announcing National Theater Project Finalists

Each year, the National Theater Project (NTP) advisors meet in the spring to decide which projects will be invited to complete a final application for the NTP Creation and Touring Grant. The goal of the meeting is not only to choose the finalists but also to provide feedback for applicants who are not selected. The hope is that if unsuccessful applicants apply for funding in the next round, they will have a stronger proposal.

The discussions are always lively and informative, and result in a very strong list of final applicants.Read more »
