Thrown Stone is pleased to announce three new programs for 2020, supported by a generous grant from the Daniel E. Offutt III Charitable Trust.
Offutt Arts Access Initiative
Thrown Stone strongly believes the arts are for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. With support from the Offutt Charitable Trust, Thrown Stone will offer free tickets to select student and community groups, and a block of subsidized low-cost tickets for every regular performance in 2020. These subsidized tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to all audiences when tickets go on sale in April 2020. Groups interested in reserving free tickets under the Arts Access initiative are invited to contact us.
Thrown Stone’s interns get a hands-on education in the production of world-class, cutting-edge theatre. The Offutt Charitable Trust has underwritten the stipends of four 2020 interns selected from local high schools and colleges. If you or a student you know is interested in interning for Thrown Stone, please contact us.
Rolling World Premiere
The Offutt Charitable Trust has also provided underwriting support for Thrown Stone’s first National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere: Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven by Reina Hardy. This sharp, sweet, all-ages comedy asks big questions about family, friendship, and what it means to be special in our corner of the universe. Opening July 10, 2020.
Thrown Stone is grateful to be one of several Fairfield County, Connecticut, nonprofits that received grants from the Daniel E. Offutt III Charitable Trust. Recipients include the Weston EMS, Westport EMS, Weston Library, the Westport Historical Society, and others. Special thanks to trustee Richard Orenstein, whose vision and guidance were instrumental in establishing these programs.
