  • Location within the US or its territories
  • Professional orientation and high artistic standards
  • Full-time salaried employment of professional artists and administrators

  • Wish to initiate, continue and/or deepen relationship(s) with theatre professionals and/or theatre companies outside of the U.S.

The New Generations Program is primarily designed to serve producing theatre organizations and not other organizations whose primary mission is audience development, advocacy, or other service-related goals. However, in the Future Leaders objective, the panel will consider applications from non-producing organizations who are actively engaged in the development of new theatrical work and new artists.

Selection Process

Applicant theatres and individual theatre professionals complete the online registration form then submit an Application Form, including a two-page narrative description of the project and other selected information. A panel, composed of independent national theatre professionals, reviews the applications and selects recipients. Visit the deadlines page to view notification dates.
