What is Fellowship for Performing Arts?
Founded by award-winning actor Max McLean, FPA is a not-for-profit New York City-based production company producing theatre from a Christian worldview to engage a diverse audience.
Where do you produce your work?
In addition to an annual season in New York City, FPA tours its productions in major cities from coast to coast and internationally.
What plays have you done?
FPA recent productions include the international hit The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert, Martin Luther on Trial, Mark’s Gospel, Genesis, Robert Bolt’s A Man for All Seasons, and the first New York revival of the Tony-nominated play Shadowlands.
How do you choose your productions?
FPA carefully selects works from great authors and themes that can articulate the Christian worldview in a way that is imaginative, multi-layered and relatable to audiences from any faith perspective, or none at all.
How do you select your actors and designers?
With our home base in the center of the theatre district in New York, we live and work among the most talented actors, creative talent and casting directors, who we engage to help us produce our works at the highest level of excellence our budgets allow.
How is FPA supported?
FPA is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit. We have also been members of ECFA since 1996. Ticket revenue covers about 50% of our annual budget. The rest comes from the philanthropic support of patrons like you.
What is the Fellowship Circle?
Almost 90% of our support comes from a group of donors called the Fellowship Circle. They bridge the financial gap not covered by ticket sales. If you are interested in knowing more about the Fellowship Circle, please click here.
