The Atlanta Shakespeare Company (ASC) was awarded a $25,000 grant from Arts Midwest on behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts that will allow ASC to participate in Shakespeare in American Communities, the NEA’s national project to bring professional Shakespeare performances to communities with little access to professional theatre.
National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $82 million to fund local arts projects and partnerships in the NEA’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2016. Included in this announcement is an Art Works award of $20,000 to the Atlanta Shakespeare Company (ASC) to fund residencies at Atlanta Public Schools.
We are very excited to have helped such a worthy cause!
The Atlanta Shakespeare Company announces its collaboration with four in-town Atlanta theatre companies.

What is the Shakespeare Tavern®?
The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse is unlike other theaters. It is a place out of time; a place of live music, hand-crafted period costumes, outrageous sword fights with the entire experience centered on the passion and poetry of the spoken word. With a Ready To Eat Café-Style Menu and a broad selection of Irish ales and premium brews, the Shakespeare Tavern® is a place to eat, drink, and nourish the soul.
