Triad Stage, one of North Carolina’s fastest growing professional theaters, has been awarded a National Theatre Company Grant by the organization that founded the Tony Awards®, the American Theatre Wing.
The $10,000 grant honors the top 10 most promising theaters to have emerged in the last 15 years across the United States. Triad Stage is the only recipient in the Southeast. Other winners of the inaugural grant include theaters in Arlington, Boise, Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York City, Philadelphia and Portland.
“Triad Stage has emerged as a leading regional arts organization that has hired almost a thousand actors, directors and designers, while serving as a catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Greensboro,” said Linda A. Carlisle, Secretary, N.C. Department of Cultural Resources. “During the last nine seasons the theater has developed a loyal base of supporters that recognize artistic quality and innovation.
