Township Theatre Group (TTG), Long Island’s oldest continuously operating volunteer community theatre company, was recently awarded a 2018 Omnibus Grant for $7,000 through the office of Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, MD. The grant is administered through the Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning and is directed to cultural programs relevant to the enhancement of the tourism industry in Suffolk County, including theatrical activities. Spencer’s 18th Legislative District encompasses the Huntington area where TTG was founded in 1952 and currently performs.
“TTG greatly appreciates the support of Suffolk County and especially Legislator Spencer’s commitment to the arts in the Long Island community,” said Susan Emro, President, Township Theatre Group. The grant will assist with production costs for the group’s Spring Season musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” from June 2 to 16. Details can be found at www.townshiptheatregroup.org.
