Recieving the GCA Vibrant Community grant provided BRCT with the confidence to attempt to produce such a complicated production. We are proud of our relationship with GCA. They are known as a “litmus test” for the Arts. We can do anything with GCA’s support! The individuals associated with GCA were and are always there to answer questions, hear ideas and give objective input to our projects. Working with GCA adds to our professional profile. The general public knows that if GCA gives a grant that the organization is in solid footing and is of the quality that the public demands. GCA is our “good housekeeping seal of approval”. The patrons and supporters of our theater are made aware of our successes with GCA. We announced our grant at every perfomrance since we recieved it. It has and will continue to increase our attendance. It is asssiting BRCT in raising donations and additional grants. Our patrons and other Grant Providers look carefully at our grant awards when evaluation whether to give donations or award grants or not.
