Produced annually by TCG for nearly four decades, Theatre Facts is the only document analyzing the U.S. professional not-for-profit theatre field. Based on data collected and reviewed by TCG through its annual Fiscal Survey, Theatre Facts offers three lenses through which to explore the state of the field and is a vital resource for theatre professionals, trustees, funders, policy makers, researchers, educators, students, and journalists.
TCG produces an annual Special Report on Education that gives visibility to theatre education work and provides resources and professional development opportunities to theatre education staff, including an online reporting tool for the annual TCG Education Survey, a searchable database of study guides from TCG Member Theatres, and regular education director teleconferences.
Centerpieces include in-depth analyses, case studies, and resource tools on specific management issues, aimed at theatre staff and board members. Topics include overnance, marketing, development, education, and general management issues, and were curated by specialists in each area.
As part of TCG's strategic initiative Audience (R)Evolution, the Research & Resources Hub includes a comprehensive literature review, recent field-wide research, essays, articles from Audience (R)Evolution grantees, and archived videos from past Audience (R)Evolution Convenings to facilitate the program’s commitment to widespread dissemination of innovative and impactful audience-engagement and community-development practice.
In order to better serve theatre board members, whose crucial roles involve the gifts of time, imagination, and ideas, TCG has created the Trustee Corner, a hub aimed at helping theatre trustees learn more about the field, connect with other trustees and theatre leaders across the country, and play an important role in serving the needs of their theatre and the greater theatre community.
TCG's other resources include New Plays in Production, the Stage Matters video, American Theatre Archives, Information Requests and Referral Services, and professional development resources.
