New Rep Receives Shubert Grant

The Shubert Foundation, Inc. has awarded New Repertory Theatre in Newton a $5,000 general operating grant. The grant is the first Shubert grant the 19-year-old theatre company has received.

The grant to New Rep was made after rigorous assessment of the company’s operation and its contribution to the field of professional theatre in the United States. The Shubert Foundation awarded the grant based also on the theatre company's artistic achievement, administrative strength and fiscal stability.

The mission of The Shubert Foundation is to sustain and advance the live performing arts in the United States, with a particular emphasis on theatre and a secondary focus on dance. Toward that end, The Foundation supports not-for-profit, professional resident theatre and dance companies, as well as some arts-related organizations that help support their development.

New Repertory Theatre presents provocative and intelligent works of both established and emerging playwrights in an intimate setting. The recipient of numerous theater awards, the company has earned a reputation for dynamic productions that feature talented professional actors, designers, and directors from the New England theatre community as well as guest artists from around the country.

Programming at New Repertory Theatre is supported in part by the
Massachusetts Cultural Council.
