TCG announces the launch of our Education Survey 2013--TCG's annual online survey of the theatre education field. Since 1999, TCG has conducted surveys of education programs across our membership. Theatres that complete their survey will find their detailed profile posted on the TCG website and will have the ability to compare and contrast their program information to other programs nationwide through our online search tool and reporting tool. The deadline for completing the survey is Friday, March 21, 2014.
TCG is now accepting applications for Round 7 of the MetLife/TCG A-ha! Program: Think It, Do It. This grant program supports theatres to dare to try new approaches to problem-solving artistic, managerial, production and/or technological challenges — to try things the organization doesn't and couldn't normally do. Apply here, and join the Grant Info Session on 2/26 at 4pm to learn more.
TCG announces the first round of recipients for the Audience (R)Evolution grant program.

Each month, a TCG staff member will select a TCG Books title that holds a special meaning — whether it’s a show the staffer performed in, a dog-eared acting resource, a writer that continually inspires or simply a favorite play – and we will offer a special discount on that title for the month. For March, J.P. Smith, artistic and international programs associate, has selected Suburbia, by Eric Bogosian, and here’s why.
Blue Star Theatres is a collaboration between TCG and Blue Star Families, with leadership support from MetLife Foundation.

This initiative is intended to recognize the contributions of service families and build stronger connections between the theatres, military families and their communities. Member Theatres interested in participating may learn more here.
