Recent Production Grants

The foundation is pleased to announce two recent production grants:

A grant to Owldolatrous Productions of Aliso Viejo, Calif., to assist in the production of Upstairs: A New Dramatic Musical by Wayne Self. The play, which premiers in New Orleans from June 20–24, 2013, is about the tragic arson-caused fire that destroyed the Up Stairs Lounge, a gay bar in New Orleans’s French Quarter, in 1973.

A grant to Aubin Pictures of New York, N.Y., to assist in post-production of a new documentary film, How to Become an Extreme Action Hero.  The film, directed by Catherine Gund, examines the life and career of choreographer Elizabeth Streb.
