EMERGING ARTISTS LUNCHEON

The Emerging Artists Luncheon is a celebration of Vineyard Theatre’s artistic development and education programs, which give artists a safe space to develop new plays and musicals, and offer free arts learning opportunities to local public high school students.

The Luncheon is also the occasion on which we grant the annual Paula Vogel Playwriting Award and the Susan Stroman Directing Award. This honor is awarded to talented playwrights at the beginning of their careers, and includes a stipend and year-long residency to develop a new work at The Vineyard. Through this opportunity, we hope to aid these up-and-coming writers in their transition to a career in professional theatre.
