From The Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts:
The Theatre Lab has lost a wonderful friend and an integral member of our family. We mourn the passing of George Grant, who over the past ten years taught countless Theatre Lab classes for adults and teens as well as Life Stories programs for young men who have been incarcerated. Generous with his time, knowledge and spirit, George was beloved by his students. And that affection was mutual. His family wrote that his students were “among George’s greatest joys.”
George was also an accomplished actor, having graduated from The Shakespeare Theatre’s MFA Classical Acting Program, and an inventive director who worked frequently with The Capital Fringe Festival and at his alma mater Lawrence University among many other venues. A memorial service will be held in Chicago on August 1 and a memorial in DC is currently being planned for September. Though we are deeply saddened by his passing, we at The Theatre Lab look forward to celebrating his life and legacy, and we hope you will join us when the memorial date is announced.
