EON receives $50k grant

Published December 07. 2012 4:00AM

National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman announced recently that the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center is one of 832 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA ArtWorks grant. The developmental theater is recommended for a $50,000 grant to support new play development for its 2013 National Playwrights Conference and National Music Theater Conference season; it received a $30,000 grant last year. Public funding from the NEA helps support the continued creation and development of new plays and musical theater works by emerging and mid-career artists. Approximately 1,250 manuscripts are received each year through an open-submission process that culminates in the selection of two to four musicals and seven to eight plays.
