Tennessee Shakespeare moves on: One of 40 companies in the United States to be awarded NEA matching grant




TSC lost its education funding this week, but the company is dusting itself off, and getting on.

"We have received over 300 calls and notes in the last three days," founding director Dan McCleary wrote in an email announcing that his Tennessee Shakespeare had been awarded a $25,000 matching grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, through ArtsMidwest and the Shakespeare in American Communities Initiative.

Another anonymous donor has also issued a $5,000 matching challenge for the month of July.
