To date, over $2 million has been granted to over 150 projects.
Since 1980, the National Asian American Telecommunications Association (NAATA) has been at the forefront of bringing Asian Pacific American media to the American public. The organization was formed to challenge the historical exclusion of Asian Pacific Americans from the media field and to counteract the distorted portrayals of Asians by mainstream press. NAATA's mission is to present stories that convey the richness and diversity of the Asian Pacific American experience. In addition to providing assistance and funding for media artists, NAATA fulfills its mission through national public television broadcasts, educational distribution, and presenting the annual San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

Actors Needed For Original Production (SF/Reno, Nevada)
[please note!: like all archived news, this call is for a production that has come and gone!]
Reno-based theatre company is seeking actors for SPRING AT INTERVALS, an original full-length modern drama with Chinese-American themes.
Peter Song (lead), is a talented young pianist struggling with his reputation as a child prodigy; his enigmatic younger sister May (lead) is a precocious violinist on the verge of international success. He comes home for Christmas following a tour of Europe, and they begin planning their annual spring concert with a friend, Kelly Tynan. Not long after, Peter fights with his parents, whom he accuses of wasting their lives. He also confronts May about falling into the same trap; she defies him at first, but begins to question her complacency, both artistically and personally. Together with Peter, as well as their parents, she begins to come to terms with their unique destiny.
MAY (younger sister), 15-23. Small, beautiful, sensuous, adores her older brother Peter, but ambivalent about his persona. Her life is her music, and she cannot separate the two.
CHARLES (father), forty-five, originally from Nanjing. Lives the American dream on a sofa in front of the TV.
ELLEN (mother), forty-two, also from Nanjing. Has never been in control of her life, and wouldn't have it different for anyone else.
Actual musical ability needed only for pantomime. Experience preferred, but enthusiasm is required. Please send headshot, resume, any and all conflicts with other shows, work, etc., to help us create a schedule.

- Flower Drum Song Bulletin
David Henry Hwang's musical revision of C.Y. Lee's classic Chinese American novel debut this past week at Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum to almost universal praise (Hm? Oh, yes...some old musical team named Rodgers and Hammerstein were involved in some way or another)(and a great Bronx cheer to those ol' stick in the muds who keep thinking of Flower Drum Song as only Rodgers & Hammerstein's....).
Reviews can be read here. Originally, this revision was set to close December 2, with no concrete plans for further work. Sources close to the production, however, have talked about an extension to the LA run. As well, Ben Mordecai, producer of the show, has been quoted in the press about a second run in San Francisco and perhaps somewhere else to tune the show up for a Broadway opening in 2002-3.
