SUMMIT, NJ - Grants from the Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund and the Union Foundation will enable Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre to purchase assistive listening system for its patrons. For the past several years, Dreamcatcher has been borrowing a system from the New Jersey Theatre Alliance, but now listening devices will be available for all programs throughout the year.

Through the combined grants, Dreamcatcher patrons will now have their experience greatly enhanced by the boost in volume and clarity that the assistive listening system provides. While assistive listening is one of many access services Dreamcatcher has offered for years, the equipment will now enable them to focus on developing other services, such as audio description, sign interpretation and open captioning. 

The Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund, administered by PNC Wealth Management, was established to support arts and culture, children and youth, mental health, and social and human services in New Jersey. The Union Foundation typically grants to local hospitals and health organizations, organizations engaged in ecological endeavors, and arts and educational institutions.
