Grant DetailsFor general operating support for the 2019-20 season and educational programs.
American Theater Group produces new and classic works primarily by American Playwrights with an emphasis on the development of new works and the rediscovery of undeservedly neglected older ones. ATG engages audiences by making theater's glorious possibilities accessible to the diverse community in which we live, through remarkable professional performances as well as quality arts-in-education programming.
Originally conceived and founded in 2012 by three theater veterans (Jim Vagias, Joe Mancuso and Rick Sordelet), the introduction of American Theater Group coincided with the opening of Union Country Performing Arts Center's Hamilton Stage in Rahway, NJ. The first production was a reading of a play by theater critic Peter Filichia in June of 2012 and, beginning the following fall, ATG presented its first full season. Since then, the company has produced 10 productions, nearly all of which were New Jersey or world premieres. In addition, ATG runs several arts education programs for students and life-long learners in the area.
