Fiscal Survey


Each year since 1974, TCG has conducted a comprehensive survey that captures financial and performance-related information from participating Member Theatres. The TCG Fiscal Survey serves as the basis for Theatre Facts, TCG's annual in-depth report on the U.S. professional not-for-profit theatre field. Available to all TCG Member Theatres, as well as the general public, Theatre Facts is a vital resource for theatre professionals, trustees, funders, policy makers, researchers, educators, students, and journalists.

Theatre Facts 2017 was published in November 2018 and is available for download from the Theatre Facts section of the TCG website. Theatre Facts reports from 2000-2016 are also currently available online, as are the companion stories published each November in American Theatre magazine. Theatre Facts 2018 will be published in November 2019.
