Theater Tampa Bay is pleased to announce our new Emerging Artist Grant of $525 and a one-year membership to TTB for seniors or incoming seniors at any college/university in Tampa Bay area and majoring in a theatre discipline.

Applicants should submit the following by the first Monday in September.  1. A single-page narrative explaining how the funds will be used during the student’s senior year and how that use will have an effect on the student’s work as a theatre artist.  The narrative should use one-inch margins and a 12-point sans serif uncondensed typeface such as Arial or Helvetica. The top line should list the artist’s name, email, and phone, preferably a cell number. 2. A current theatrical resume. Please attach both items, saved as PDFs, to an e-mail with the SUBJECT: Norton Dream Grant—Emerging Artist and send to info@theatretampabay.org

A panel of judges representing the TTB Theatres will select the most compelling narrative. The panel will be comprised of at least five members including the TTB Board President, one TTB Theatre Artistic Director and one TTB Member Actor. Panel will include at least one representative from each side of the Bay. If there is no consensus, the recipient will be selected by a simple majority of the panel.  The grant recipient will be announced as part of the TTB Awards Gala.
