The Grey House Performing Arts Directory includes 9,453 performing arts organizations and resources and 36,886 key contact names (both Artistic Management and Business titles). The listings are arranged first by five performance categories—Dance, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, Theatre, Series & Festivals—then by state and city, making it easy to research listings by both category and location. Following these five performing arts chapters are Facilities (by state), and Information Resources (by resource type), including Associations, Newsletters, Magazines & Journals, Trade Shows, Directories & Databases, and Industry Web Sites.

Performing Arts Content
Each performing arts chapter includes a vast range of listings in size, budget, and renown. In addition to the range of listings, the number of listings in each chapter is impressive: 702 Dance; 1,126 Instrumental Music; 555 Vocal Music; 1,723 Theatre; and 1,721 Series & Festivals.

Valuable contact information—name, address, phone, fax, email and web site—is at the start of each listing. You will find long lists of key staff—both Artistic Management and Business titles—and dozens of valuable details, such as: Specialized Arts Fields; Number of Paid/Volunteer Staff; Income Sources; Budget; Year Founded; Affiliations; Annual Attendance; Seating Capacity; Guest Writers/Directors; Local Talent; Artists-in-Residence; Multimedia; Student Interns; and Special Technical Talent.

Performance Facilities
