Application Deadline: September 1

Theatre Tampa Bay is accepting applications for The Jeff Norton Dream Grant for Professional Theatre Artists.

This annual, unrestricted grant honors the memory of the late artist and teacher, Jeff Norton, whose immeasurable impact on the Bay area theatre scene is still being felt.

The grant criteria is deliberately broad and the application simple. Theatre Tampa Bay encourages artists to dream, “If I only had $500, I would…”

Grant funds are unrestricted and may be used for any kind of project including production, education, travel or equipment purchase. The total grant amount of $525 includes a year’s membership in Theatre Tampa Bay.

Submit by September 1:

  • A single-page narrative explaining how the funds will be used and the effect of the grant on the applicant’s work as a theatre artist. The narrative should use one-inch margins and 12-point sans serif uncondensed typeface such as Arial or Helvetica. The top line should list the artist’s name, email and phone, preferably a cell number.
  • A current theatrical resume.

Please attach both items saved as PDFs to an email with the Subject “Norton Dream Grant” and send to:
