The OAC Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators assists theatre creators to develop new work.
This is a third-party recommender program. Using Nova, OAC’s online grant application system, theatre creators apply to theatre companies designated as recommenders for the program (a maximum of ten applications per year). These recommenders assess applications and submit grant recommendations to OAC.
We are honoured to be a recommender yet again since this program is essential to our company supporting important works in progress. One of our last season's recommended recipients, Andrea Scott (photographed above), is now our playwright in residence. Another recipient, daniel jelani ellis's speaking of sneaking, was produced with critical acclaim and was nominated for multiple Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

1) Submission is online only.
2) Deadline is has been extended to Oct 19. Listen to Auntie Catherine and submit on time.
3) Online applications close at 1pm.
