From the incisive dramas of Tony Kushner to the wordless clown suites of Bill Irwin and a multitude of other work, NYSCA has long supported a wide range of theatrical creativity. NYSCA funding sustains professional theatre companies with ongoing production and development programs. It also backs service organizations that build and reinforce administrative and institutional skills, provide resources and information, assist in the professional development of artists, and enhance education about and access to theatre for all audiences.
