The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company won the coveted Berkshire Bank "Join the Excitement" contest in southern Vermont and has received a generous grant from their foundation. This special grant was awarded to the non-profit organization in Southern Vermont that received the most votes. The WPTC received 1113 votes from friends all over the country to secure the grant.
"We are thrilled to receive this grant from Berkshire Bank," commented WPTC Director of Development Heather Brown. "It's a real testament to our vast and dedicated community of friends and supporters. It took everyone coming together to make this happen."
The $5,000 grant will support the WPTC's entire 2010 season, reaching an audience of more than 20,000 with seven productions; education, outreach and access programs; and the development of new work.
