Hall Family Foundation’s grantmaking in the arts emphasizes support of the region’s major visual and performing arts organizations, including Kansas City Repertory Theatre. KCRep has launched the “Creative Future Fund,” fundraising for new works, youth education programs and audience development and engagement initiatives. KCRep has a goal of $5 million for the expendable fund, which has already supported two iterations of their OriginKC: New Works program. Through OriginKC, KCRep provides playwrights the artistic resources they need to develop new, innovative plays of the highest artistic merit. The Rep is taking risks through new works while relentlessly encouraging excellence in all productions it stages.
