    The National Endowment for the Arts supports American theater by funding the work of theater companies of all sizes, genres, and aesthetics. Supported projects reflect the entire spectrum of the not-for-profit theater field including the production or presentation of traditional or classical repertoire, new plays, work for young audiences, experimental work, community-based work, circus arts, and puppetry. Theater projects funded by the Arts Endowment support organizations and artists in the creation and refinement of work, the public presentation of plays from all cultures and periods, and opportunities for professional development.
