Peninsula Players Receives Grant from Community Foundation
The Door County Community Foundation recently awarded Peninsula Players a Sustainability Grant from the Arts Fund to support the program, The Play’s the Thing. Components of the program involve offering free, off-season play readings to the public and also provides opportunities for students to receive playwriting instruction that culminates in a playwriting contest.
The free public play readings, held at various sites throughout Door County, offer the community the chance to hear plays read aloud that would not typically be produced at Peninsula Players. In addition, students have the unique experience to learn about different ways of writing and then practice applying that learning with the help of professional guidance.
“These readings provided the community with the enriching opportunity to hear plays read aloud that would not normally be produced at the Players due to their size, nature or complexity,” said Grace Rossman, board member of the Door County Community Foundation.
