The founding members of Epic Theatre Center

2005 Recipient - Epic Theatre Center

Epic Theatre Center is a non-profit organization founded by a collective of artists and educators who are dedicated to demonstrating the central role of the arts in a healthy democracy. Its mission is to cultivate diverse new voices and audiences for the American theatre. An artist-run company, it produces a wide range of in-depth educational programs, Off-Broadway productions, new play workshops, and community forums throughout New York City. The Journeys Series, Epic's flagship education program, uses classical plays as templates for student investigation of social issues. Epic has worked with many schools and communities both in and out of New York City. Artists from its Off-Broadway productions visit classrooms at partner schools, and students participate in rehearsals and special matinee performances. Epic Theatre Center has been awarded the prestigious Empire State Partnership from the New York State Council on the Arts for its work with Talent Unlimited High School, a public performing arts high school in Manhattan.
