About PRAIRIE THEATRE EXCHANGE FOUNDATION TRUST
Since its creation in 1987 the PTE Foundation Trust has annually provided support for Prairie Theatre Exchange operations and program. The organization reviews a request from PTE and determines what level of support it is able to provide. Typically support is given for the PTE School and new play development as both of these elements reflect the core values of Prairie Theatre Exchange. PTE began as a school and has a national reputation for being a welcoming home to contemporary, Canadian theatre.
