The National Endowment for the Arts is a public agency dedicated to advancing artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities. The NEA awards grants to arts organizations of all sizes across all 50 states and 6 U.S. territories.
The National Endowment for the Arts seeks to fund groundbreaking, innovative theater and musical theater in the American spirit that is bold, passionate, profound, creative, and engaging and that demonstrates serious, exceptional, and rigorous aesthetic values. Projects funded by the Arts Endowment should help to fully realize an organization's mission and may provide support for organizations and artists in the creation and refinement of work, the public presentation of plays and musicals from all cultures and periods, and opportunities for professional development.
This encompasses the entire spectrum of the nonprofit theater and musical theater field, including the production or presentation of traditional or classical repertoire, new plays and musicals, development laboratories, showcases, artist residencies, work for young audiences, experimental work, community-based work, outdoor historical dramas, and puppetry.
