The Bret Adams & Paul Reisch Foundation Emergency Assistances Grants

web site

Deadline: April 14, 2020


In response to the COVID-19 Theatre closures, we are redirecting our entire 2020 grant budget into emergency assistance grants of $2500 to playwrights, composers, librettists, and lyricists who have had a full professional show cancelled, closed, or indefinitely postponed due to COVID-19. We hope to be able to give up to 40 grants of $2500.

The direct link to the google form to enter the lottery is here:



You are eligible to enter the lottery for a grant of $2500 from the Bret Adams & Paul Reisch Foundation if you are:

1) A playwright, composer, lyricist, or librettist

2) Have had a full professional production (defined for these purposes as a LORT, Off-Broadway, or Broadway production, not a reading or workshop) of which you are a writer that was cancelled, closed, or indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 closures.

The form will be active until April 14th, and after that date we will be doing a random selection, to make sure the process is totally impartial.

Each artist may only submit ONE time, even if you have had more than one production cancelled. If you submit more than once, your entries will be removed.
