OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Metropolitan Community College's Great Plains Theatre Conference has been awarded a $30,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant for its 2016 PlayFest, a free annual community theater festival.
PlayFest — held every year in the spring — explores how theater can be produced in a nontraditional way and seeks to deepen the connection between community and the arts. Performances are held in uncommon spaces with a connection to the play being performed.
The award is one of 1,023 totaling $74.3 million the NEA will grant this year.
The year's PlayFest will be held Sunday through May 29. For more information, visit www.mccneb.edu/gptc or www.facebook.com/GreatPlainsTheatreConference .
