Portland Civic Theatre Guild Seeks Applicants for 2014 Awards and Fellowships
The Portland Civic Theatre Guild is now accepting applications from the Portland theatre community for its 2014 awards and fellowships. They are the Leslie O. Fulton Fellowship, $5000, the Portland Civic Theatre Guild Award, $3000, and the Mary Brand Award, $2000.
The Leslie O. Fulton Fellowship, $5000, is directed toward theatre artists of high merit to sustain and enhance their creative process. This award is made possible by a gift from Neil Fulton in honor of his late wife, Leslie O. Fulton. She was an active member of the Portland Civic Theatre Guild. Mrs. Fulton initiated the PCTG Endowment Fund through the Oregon Community Foundation and its fellowships as a way to continue the legacy of the Portland Civic Theatre.
Fellowship applicants must be from the Portland theatre community in terms of official residence or professional activity. They must be active on a regular basis in Portland area theatre and recognized as a professional by their peers. Application deadline April 11, 2014
The Portland Civic Theatre Award in Support of Theatre, $3000, is directed towards purchase of capital items. Theatres must be located in the Portland area. Application deadline April 11, 2014.
The Mary Brand Award, $2000, is directed to individuals and programs that involve young people in theatre education as participants, observers, or students. The award honors Mary Brand who founded the Portland Civic Theatre Guild in 1958 as a way to assist the theatre. Among the programs sustained by Guild activities was the Portland Civic Theatre School which provided training to thousands of theatre students of all ages over several decades. Application deadline March 14, 2014.
The recipients will be chosen by selection panels comprised of theatre professionals and Guild members. Applicants will be evaluated in a variety of areas including excellence of proposal, feasibility of completion and contribution to artistic growth of the applicant, theatre company, or program. Full details are presented in the application.
The fellowships and awards are offered by the Portland Civic Theatre Guild, a nonprofit group founded in 1958 as an adjunct to one of the nation’s oldest and largest community theatres. The Guild presents the Portland Civic Theatre Guild First Tuesday Readers Theatre season at the Old Church October through May each year. In addition, the Guild sponsors the Drammy Awards.
