We are proud to announce that The American Shakespeare Collective has been awarded a grant of $6000 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 494 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2015 funding.
Organizations receiving a MCACA grant award are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. Local and regional support of the project include Lansing Community College, GreenStone Farm Credit Services (Charlotte Mi. branch), Kohler Industries and Grower Ag Protection Service: Garnant Farms – Eaton Rapids Mi.
The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.
Attention: May 28th we will be having an artistic exchange with many of the artists involved in the upcoming production of Invierno over wine and cheese! For information on the event and where to purchase tickets, click HERE.
Our upcoming production of Invierno:
In Pre-Statehood California (Alta California, then under Mexican rule) the story is told of two half sisters, and the conflict between the native Chumash and conquering Spanish, adventuring Russians, and mercenary Finns, as the struggle for control of the land mirrors the struggle for control of conflicting cultures.
In present-day California, two teenagers run through the forest, desperate to escape their lives. They tumble backward through time and in healing the past, claim their present and face their future.
