$70,000 Arts Appreciation Grant from Gulf Coast Community Foundation

Posted: July 8 / 2020

Asolo Repertory Theatre has been awarded an Arts Appreciation Grant of $70,000 by Gulf Coast Community Foundation.

As the theatre rebuilds following significant financial losses due to show cancellations related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Arts Appreciation Grant will provide essential support to help Asolo Rep reopen the theatre and cover costs associated with its 2020-21 season. From securing the safety of its audience, staff, volunteers, and the actors on stage, to covering the costs of producing the season, Gulf Coast's Arts Appreciation Grant ensures that Asolo Rep will be able to continue creating world class theatre here in Sarasota for the Sarasota community, as soon as it is safe to do so.
