Local arts organization Orlando Repertory Theatre has been named as a recipient of a $10,000 Art Works grant from the National Endowment of the Arts. The award is part of $84 million awarded to arts programs across the country by the NEA.

This award is intended to support the Rep in hosting a concert by Grammy-winning children's musician Secret Agent 23 Skidoo and outreach work to families with young children throughout Central Florida.

Not only will Skidoo be performing, but he will also conduct a song-writing workshop for young people that will teach fundamentals across genre and style.

“We celebrate organizations like Orlando Repertory Theatre for providing opportunities for learning and engagement through the arts in these times," said Mary Anne Carter, NEA chairperson.
