Theatre Communications Group is the primary advocate for the not-for-profit professional theatre in the United States. TCG represents the theatre field both in Washington, DC, and nationally, to provide timely information for theatres and theatre artists on federal legislation, regulations and other significant government opportunities and issues.
TCG is a member of the Performing Arts Alliance, the Coalition of Performing Arts Advocates. The Alliance is a coalition of national performing arts service organizations dedicated to advocating for national policies that recognize, enhance, and foster the contributions the performing arts make to America. Other founding members include the Association of Performing Arts Professionals, Dance/USA, the League of American Orchestras, and OPERA America. Members include American Composers Forum, Chorus America, Fractured Atlas, National Alliance for Musical Theatre, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture, National Performance Network, New Music America, and Chamber Music America. Together we advocate effectively on issues that specifically affect the performing arts and approach all our efforts through a performing arts lens.
We encourage everyone to visit the Performing Arts Alliance website and to join our advocacy network in order to receive Action Alerts that will inform you as to when and how to make your voice heard!
