Music Theater Works Receives Signal Grant From the Bayless Family Foundation

February 6 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

$39 – $106

Music Theater Works, launching its 43rd season with the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Avenue Q, March 9 – April 2, is pleased to announce it has received a Signal Grant by the Bayless Family Foundation for MTW’s efforts to update shows with outdated or actively offensive content. This grant was announced with three Stepping Stone grants, named for theatre companies poised to take their next big step, being given to Filament Theatre, Shattered Globe Theatre and Theater Wit.

The Signal Grants are intended to draw focus to a company the Bayless Family Foundation believes in, and to inspire other donors to give generously to the company. This grant is part of the Bayless Family Foundation’s new contribution of nearly $500,0000 in grant awards to a handful of Chicago theaters companies that were announced last week.

“These organizations are all super vital for their community, their audience and the greater Chicago theatre community. We selected these organization’s proposals for their strategic visions to support Chicago art makers, their utilization of the organizations’ resources and strengths and how well we believe they will fortify the institutions for the future. We are beyond proud to partner with them,” said Foundation Director Kevin Sullivan.

Formed in 2017 by Rick Bayless and his wife Deann, the Bayless Family Foundation supports established Chicago theater organizations with a vision for institutional and artistic growth. Since its inception, it has supported local theaters with about $2 million in overall support.
