YS Kids Playhouse receives NEA grant for 2013 Summer Program

Posted December 5th, 2012 by John

Yellow Springs, Ohio — National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Rocco Landesman announced today that the YS Kids Playhouse is one of 832 non-profit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. The YSKP is recommended for a $10,000 grant to support the 2013 Summer Theater Immersion.

In July of 2013 the YSKP will revisit one of its most popular musicals – Gaston Boudreaux, the Cajun Robin Hood. This production, first presented in 2002, investigated the role of the environment in impacting cultural changes. For the upcoming production, the YSKP will partner with local environmental organizations including the Tecumseh Land Trust.

“I’m proud to announce these 832 grants to the American public including the YS Kids Playhouse,” said Chairman Landesman. “These projects offer extraordinary examples of creativity in our country, including the creation of new work, innovative ways of engaging audiences, and exemplary education programs.”

In response to receiving this good news, YSKP Founder and Artistic Director John Fleming said: “As the YSKP enters its 19th year, we are ever grateful to our individual supporters for almost two decades of support as audiences, volunteers and patrons.”

In March 2012, the NEA received 1,509 eligible applications for Art Works requesting more than $74 million in funding. The 832 recommended NEA grants total $22.3 million, span 13 artistic disciplines and fields, and focus primarily on the creation of work and presentation of both new and existing works for the benefit of American audiences. Applications were reviewed by panels of outside experts convened by NEA staff and each project was judged on its artistic excellence and artistic merit.

The YSKP is the only professional performing arts organization in Yellow Springs and is the largest employer of artists and teaching artists in the village. It receives sustaining support from the Ohio Arts Council, the YS Community Foundation, the Morgan Family Foundation, Culture Works and Antioch College.

    The last step up the process is to package the finished product.
    The answer is ammonia gas, a chemical you have to clean the kitchen or
    bathroom. You wouldn’t like to have to get the manual out each and every time you put it to use.

    After all, what are the chances that you would draw the one and only room in a 200-room, five-star hotel whose weight
    room is located directly above your head. To add variety to your routine one must mix
    up your reps, sets, weight used, rest periods, exercises, duration, and intensity.

    First of all, there’s the issue of clearance: a bigger blade won’t likely clear the blade guard on a miter or radial arm or
    the throat plate on a table saw. A circular saw blade has a saw teeth and a machine
    that spins the disk. The table saw additionally boasts
    8″ treaded pneumatic wheels so, like a fierce, all terrain table saw, the tool confidently maneuvers through difficult jobsite environments.

    With POS integration, when a customer places an order online, the order is sent directly to the POS system and automatically put into the system.
    Just try imagining a car with a Dominos sign placed on its roof
    gunning it through red lights, probably not the kind of advertisement the company had been looking for.

    There are two ways to go about this, firstly, change
    your diet and secondly use some natural products that help adjust your
    sugar levels without the side effects. Keeping
    this craze in mind companies are opening outlets in different parts
    of the world.

    Inspect the choke plate for the chain saw if there is trouble starting.
    This achievement materialized in 1950, even though the tool was rather bulky.
    Modern saw technology offers potential owners two distinctly different paths when it
    comes to what type of technology they want their saw to operate with.
