Dad’s Garage Theatre wins $100,000 grant, stands behind bacon Dad’s Garage Theatre, which has aligned its mission with subversive comedy and bacon, received validation Tuesday when it announced a $100,000 grant from the Community Foundation for a Greater Atlanta.
The grant will be delivered over a two year period and will help to cover the theater’s million-dollar yearly operating costs. “It’s an incredible level of support for our organization,” said the theater’s development director Stephen Barwick.
The theater won a $75,000 “managing for excellence” award earlier this year, also from the Community Foundation, a group, Barwick said, that has been “a tremendous supporter of Dad’s Garage Theatre.”
It has been a tumultuous period of change for the non-profit theater group. Homeless since it moved out of its Inman Park theater in 2013, the improvisational troupe has been putting on performances at 7 Stages in Little Five Points and at other locales, though not at its usual blistering pace of 300 shows a year.
