Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe was recently awarded a grant of $30,000 from the John J. Clopine Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. These funds will support WBTT’s upcoming fall gala, “A Night at the Savoy”; “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: Celebrating His Legacy” in January; “April Fools Fete,” the spring fundraiser; and expenses related to WBTT’s Education and Outreach Building. “We are so grateful to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for its continued support of our organization,” said Julie Leach, executive director of WBTT. “As we resume our regular theater season and in-person events, this funding will offer tremendous support for our work and events while helping to ensure our continued positive impact on the community.” 

The Education and Outreach Building includes: a first-floor education wing; a 4,000-square-foot space that mainly functions as three multi-purpose education rooms but also transforms into an event space with a capacity of up to 200 dining guests for theatre or private functions; a second floor with weekday box office, conference room; administrative offices; a library; and a 6,000-square-foot rooftop garden terrace event space for patrons and other community organizations.
