Millville, NJ – January 22nd, 2018 

The Off Broad Street Players Board of Directors are thrilled to announce that OBSP has been awarded 2018 grant funding from the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission totaling $8,750!

Funding for the grant is made possible by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

The award for the 2018 calendar year marks the highest grant award received in OBSP’s twenty year history.

When asked for comment on the received funding, Artistic Director and OBSP Founder, Walter A. Webster, stated, “with the help of the Commission, we are beyond excited to continue our commitment to producing great community theatre as well as broadening our educational mission for both children and adults throughout South Jersey and beyond”.

OBSP’s mission focuses on promoting the study of Musical Theatre and plays. The organization also serves to promote and provide the public with an opportunity to have a quality, community theatre at affordable prices through the efforts of individuals in Southern New Jersey and the surrounding area who display an interest in theatre productions.

OBSP President Robin Wood reiterated Mr. Webster’s comments noting “OBSP is honored to receive the Cumberland County Cultural Heritage Grant. The funding allows us to continue to expand on our community outreach through our performances. We are blessed to be the resident theatre company in the beautiful and historic Levoy Theatre. We have grown each year through our partnership with the Levoy. Thank you to the Cumberland County Cultural Heritage Commission”.

The arts re-grant from the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission focuses on supporting organizations within Cumberland County that offer a high level of quality programming with anticipated value to the community.

The Grants Review Panel cited OBSP’s ‘great productions, exploring new topics [including] LGBTQ inclusion, and creating a long bench of excellent volunteers.’ The panel was also impressed not only by the organization’s production/acting skills, but the organizations value in training people in non-profit management.

OBSP’s next theatrical production Oklahoma! runs February 9th through the 18th at the beautiful Levoy Theatre in Millville, NJ. Tickets are on sale now at www.levoy.net or by calling the box office at (856)327-6400.
