A Theatre Communications Group (TCG) “(Re)Modeling Grant” has been awarded to Cape Fear Regional Theatre (CFRT) in Fayetteville. The theater will partner with Hidden Voices and Mike Wiley Productions to develop their community engagement initiative, “Voices from the Homefront,” an outreach effort to give voice to the military community. Focusing on the spouses and children of deployed military men and women, CFRT will develop a process to turn these voices into a piece of documentary theatre, programmed as a stage reading and installation.
Funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Audience (R)Evolution grant program is awarding ten grants for a total amount of almost $800,000, including total general operating support of over $118,000. (Re)Modeling grants will support TCG Member Theatres who aim to increase their proficiency in reaching specific audience(s)/community(ies) by observing, adapting and/or implementing successful models used by newly identified partner organization(s). (Re)Imagining grants will support TCG Member Theatres with a high level of proficiency and successful track record of reaching audience(s)/community(ies) who now seek new and/or different ways to deepen or expand this work.
