AANT corporate and foundation support

Corporate support 

The American Associates of the National Theatre (AANT) works in tandem with the National Theatre to deliver high profile partnerships with a number of companies headquartered in the US. We pride ourselves on our commitment to understanding and meeting the business objectives of our corporate partners. 

Our approach has a focus on creativity, innovation, flexibility, professionalism, as well as return on investment and turnkey activation. Opportunities in the US include sponsorship and client entertaining around Broadway transfers of the NT’s award-winning productions, National Theatre Live, National Theatre at Home , NT Collection, and high profile Gala events. Additionally, corporate clients in the US can join the Global Corporate Partners program, and have access to National Theatre benefits all around the world.

Foundation support

The AANT provides incredible opportunities for US-based foundations to support the work of the National Theatre both in the UK, and in the US. Grants from US-based foundations play a vital role in enabling the National Theatre to make world-class theatre, for everyone, everywhere.  

The National Theatre’s work in the United States includes learning programs such as free access to NT Collection in New York City public schools, as well as subsidized tickets for National Theatre productions on Broadway and on tour. The National Theatre also reaches US audiences in cinemas through NT Live, and virtually through NT at Home. AANT can also facilitate partnerships with the National Theatre in other areas that would interest you.

Case Study – Edgerton Foundation

Piloted in 2006 with the Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, the Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards give plays in development extended rehearsal periods for the entire creative team, including the playwrights. The program launched nationally in 2007 and has awarded grants to non-profit theatres for 216 new plays to date. The Edgerton Foundation was awarded the 2011 TCG National Funder Award. The Foundation’s interest is the promotion of great new plays in the hope that other theatres will subsequently produce them. 

The National Theatre is truly international in reach, and support from foundations and corporations in the US make this possible. For further information about how the National Theatre could be working with your organisation, contact the AANT office in New York.
