Theatre Community Fund of Kansas City Announces $500 Grants To Local Theatre Professionals sponsored by Theater League
In order to provide assistance to local theater artists who have lost work due to the pandemic, Theater League has designated funds from its endowment to distribute grants of up to $500 to actors, stage managers, designers, and technicians in need. The newly formed Theatre Community Fund of Kansas City (TCF) will assist the League in identifying local theater artists in need and helping distribute these grants.
These grants can be used for any lawful purpose to provide for the needs of the grantees. Applicants must be professional actors, stage managers, designers, or technicians who reside in the Greater Kansas City area and performed in, designed, or assisted at a professional (not community) theater in the Greater Kansas City area in 2019. Grants will be awarded beginning in January 2021.
