CENTER THEATRE GROUP IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2021 DOROTHY AND RICHARD E. SHERWOOD AWARD!
Center Theatre Group is now accepting applications for the 2021 Dorothy and Richard E. Sherwood Award!
Center Theatre Group’s $10,000 Dorothy and Richard E. Sherwood Award for theatre artists is given annually to nurture innovative and adventurous theatre artists working in Los Angeles. Two additional finalists will each receive a $2,000 honorarium.
The deadline for the initial application consisting of an artist’s statement and resume is June 17, 2020 at 12PM.
After the first round, select candidates will be invited to submit full applications. Full applications, along with letters of recommendation and work sample material will be due no later than August 14, 2020. The awardee will be announced at the LA STAGE Alliance Ovation Awards.
The Sherwood Award nurtures selected artists and invites them to engage in a professional relationship with Center Theatre Group. Competitive candidates demonstrate leadership qualities, push existing boundaries, and are dedicated to improving the future of their respective artistic fields. Artists are not limited by title, role, or genre, but they must have a relationship to contemporary performance rooted in theatre.
We will be hosting an Artist Statement Workshop via Zoom for interested applicants on Saturday, June 13 at 11AM. Former Sherwood Award recipient Miranda Wright and the Sherwood Team, Center Theatre Group Line Producer for Artistic Projects, Patricia Garza, and Sherwood Fellow Brianna Saranchock, will lead applicants through a series of exercises that will help them craft a captivating artist statement for Phase 1 of the application and future endeavors. This session is recommended, not required, and is open to anyone who would like more information about the application process. To RSVP please email [email protected] by Thursday June 11, 2020.
