Application & Selection Process

Applications are developed by the actor and the host theatre company and submitted by the actor, who is the application contact. Theatres may support only one actor in each round, regardless of category. Multiple proposals will not be considered.

A national independent advisory panel consisting of artistic directors, freelance directors and actors will evaluate the applications and submit their recommendations to the Fox Foundation. The Fox Foundation will determine the final list of recipients.
