This grant was awarded by the student evaluation team from the Fall 2016 course, in conjunction with their 1 year evaluation in Fall 2017. Theatre LILA has been presenting professional theatre productions since the company was founded in New York City in 2004. Since transplanting the company to Madison in 2013, they have been able to gather some of the best theatre artists in the state to collaborate and create new works with us. The company is led by professional theatre artists with the skill sets and forward thinking needed to create these inventive works and connect with the community. Theatre LILA’s education and outreach mission is to provide equitable access for K-12 students to experience Theatre LILA productions and participate in storytelling theatre workshops to expand and develop their writing, creativity, leadership and collaboration skills.
