Twin City Stage (TCS) announced today it is the recipient of a $30,000 Reynolds American Foundation Grant. TCS plans to use the grant to help fund the theater company’s 2016-17 season school group productions.

Since its merger with the Children’s Theatre of Winston-Salem in 2011, TCS has continued to provide multiple live theater experiences for school groups annually. For many students, these “field trips” are their first exposure to live theater.

“Seeing a play or a musical is a tremendous benefit to the education process,” says Christine Gorelick, Interim Executive Director, “and many children just don’t get the opportunity. With this generous grant from Reynolds American, we’ll be able to continue providing performances for school kids. We’ll also be able to continue our discounted tickets for Title 1 schools in the area.” 

TCS will offer school productions of "Dog Loves Books," "Sense and Sensibility," "Laura Ingalls Wilder," "The Rainbow Fish," and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" during its 2016-17 season.
