Located in the northern section of Manhattan, the Moose Hall Theatre Company showcases classical contemporary theater, dance and music for a culturally mixed population, many of whom are experiencing live theater for the first time. The company received a Puffin grant to produce a free outdoor presentation of “Spartacus,” written and directed by Ted Minos, at the Inwood Shakespeare Festival 2007.

In 2007 the Working Theater of NYC produced Lynn Rosen’s anti-Iraq war comedy “Back to the Front,” at the theater of Riverside Church. The Working Theater presents culturally diverse plays that explore the lives of working people and the issues they are confronted with. Through their outreach programs the group strives to make theater accessible to the working people of New York.

The Labyrinth Theater Company was founded by a group of Latino actors who joined forces to create an artistic home where they could work on theater that was relevant to their own experiences. The company soon evolved into a multi-ethnic ensemble creating original theater reflecting the true face of New York. The Labyrinth production of Intringulis is a new play by first-time writer Carlo Alban and is the story of his family’s move to America from Ecuador and their subsequent economic, legal and social battles. Interspersed in the performance are Latin-American protest songs which speak of the hope for social change.
These are only some highlights of the Theater grants given in 2007.
