The Eagle Theatre Receives $21,000 Grant

HAMMONTON - The Eagle Theatre was the recipient of a generous grant from the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism for $21,000.
The funding is earmarked to market South Jersey's only year-round professional Equity Theatre as a destination and is one of several grants received by the theater over the past few months, increasing its total amount received to over $125,000. Other benefactors include the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the NJ Council for the Humanities, the Town of Hammonton, the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, and various other non-profit foundations.
In addition to the grants, partnerships have been formed as a result of the Underwriting Program for small, medium, and large businesses and a Three Year, Three Million Dollar Annual Giving Campaign was launched earlier this year for the theatre. Nearly $500,000 of the goal has already been committed.
"The state, county, and town, along with so many other organizations and individuals, have all really stepped up to keep the Eagle Theatre and Hammonton growing,” said Zane Sebasovich, Director of Development for the Eagle Theatre. “This funding will allow us to expand the promotion of the theatre and market this town as a destination.”
The Eagle Theater is located at 208 Vine Street in Downtown Hammonton. For more information, visit their website at
