Peninsula Players Receive Award

Peninsula Players Theatre received a $15,000 award from The Shubert Foundation. The Shubert Foundation awarded a record total of $26.8 million to 533 not-for-profit performing arts organizations across the United States. The Shubert Foundation provides grants only to organizations that have established artistic and administrative track records, as well as a pattern of fiscal responsibility. This award marks the third year Peninsula Players Theatre has received support from the Shubert Foundation.

“We want to help lift some of the financial burden so that the companies we support are able to focus on producing thought-provoking, relevant work for the widest possible audience,” said Foundation Chair Philip J. Smith.

“The Shubert name is synonymous with excellence in American Theater,” said Peninsula Players Theatre Managing Director Brian Kelsey. “It is an honor for us to be recognized by one of the most highly respected foundations and organizations in our field.”

Peninsula Players is celebrating its 83rd season in 2018. For more information and a list of the current shows visit
