FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Everyman Gets $4,000 in Grant Funding
Dec 18, 2014
ROCKPORT — The Everyman Repertory Theatre has received grant monies totaling $4,000, with $3,000 coming from the Theatre Fund of the Maine Community Foundation to help fund its 2015 season; and the maximum grant of $1,000 from the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission, to help fund its production of Arlene Hutton’s “As it is in Heaven.”
This is the sixth time Everyman has received this grant from Maine Community Foundation; and the third time from the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have these agencies in the state and we feel very lucky to be receiving this level of support from them,” said Everyman Rep Artistic Director Paul Hodgson.
Everyman’s upcoming production of the Shaker play “As it is in Heaven” will be presented with the Farnsworth Art Museum as the culmination of its Shaker exhibition, “From Mount Lebanon to the World.” The play will open Feb. 20 at the Rockport Opera House.
“The show matches MHC and MAC’s core principles because we are hosting a post-show talk, which will include a conversation with Brother Arnold, from the Sabbathday Lake Shaker community in Western Maine, and Michael Komanecky, Chief Curator at the Farnsworth Art Museum,” said Hodgson.
Further details of the talk will be announced closer to the date. For more information, visit everymanrep.org and Everyman Rep’s Facebook page. Tickets will be available online and via the box office (236-0173).
