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 11, 2016.
The recipient will be chosen by the members of the Portland Civic Theatre Guild. Applicants will be evaluated in a variety of areas including excellence of proposal and feasibility of completion. Full details are presented in the application.
The Mary Brand 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 and the Portland Civic Theatre Guild New Play Award as part of Fertile Ground: Portland’s City Wide Festival of New Works.
