Philadelphia Theatre Company will convert a presently unfinished 2,800-square-foot space on the second floor of its building into a multifunctional studio, supporting the company’s development of new theater work and serving as a complement to its proscenium mainstage. A new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system will create a healthy and safe environment for artists, staff, community partners, and rental clients to hold rehearsals, in-progress play readings, and other activities.

The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
