Commonweal Theatre Receives Grant Support


Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre Company, located in historic downtown Lanesboro, has been the recipient of grant monies totaling more than $60,000 during the first half of 2013. Now in its 25th season, the Commonweal continues to serve as a cultural, educational, and economic asset to the region. Currently, the non-profit theatre is about to launch a summer repertory featuring two plays: the hilarious classic comedy Blithe Spirit, and the thrilling tale of Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure.

The McKnight Foundation, a Minnesota-based family foundation, seeks to improve the quality of life for present and future generations. Through its mission, McKnight aids the improvement of the quality of the arts and access to the arts in Minnesota. In support of Commonweal’s work and contributions to the southeast Minnesota region, The McKnight Foundation has granted the theatre $25,000 for general operating support. Another operating support grant in the amount of $15,000 came from the Shubert Foundation out of New York, dedicated to sustaining and advancing live performing arts throughout the United States. Additionally, The Schwab Charitable Fund provided $500 for annual giving.

The American Scandinavian Foundation gifted $1,000 to the 16th Annual Ibsen Festival for special guest speaker Astrid Saether from the Center for Ibsen Studies in Norway. The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, DC awarded the Commonweal $8,000 in support of Ibsen Festival guest speakers Nissar and Amal Allana from Delhi, India, and this grant also helped support the 2013 Midwest Tour of A Doll’s House. The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) awarded the Commonweal $10,000 in support of the Southeastern Minnesota Ibsen Tour stops to Faribault, Red Wing and the opening in Lanesboro. This SEMAC support is thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund and made possible by the voters of Minnesota. SEMAC provided an additional $600 in the area of Arts Management Training to allow Executive Director Hal Cropp and Director of External Communications Adrienne Sweeney to attend the Theatre Communications Group National Conference in June. Hal Cropp was also a featured speaker at the TCG Conference.
