Amplify Women's VOICES

Help us bring women's voices to the stage. Women are underrepresented in American theater, and we are out to change that in our community. In the spring of 2019, VOICES will produce an original theatre piece created by a group of diverse local women artists.

We need your help. The monies raised from this fundraiser will help us cover the cost of production materials and rent a space. We are also committed to paying the women we hire! 

An ongoing study by the Lilly Awards in partnership with the Dramatists Guild has found that only 22% of the plays produced in the U.S. in the last three years were written by women. Only 22%.

“If life worked like the theater, 4 out of 5 things you had ever heard would have been said by men.”

VOICES produces original, devised theatre through an innovative process that illuminates the stories and ideas of underrepresented communities.  

Donate today and help us amplify women's voices through the arts!

Our Women's Voices Project performed to nearly sold-out audiences last weekend, and we are deeply proud of the eight courageous women who took the stage with powerful new theater: Alya Howe, Gabriela Alvarez Espinoza, Trary Maddalone LaMee, Julie Comins Pickrell, Barbara Reese, Iliana Rentería, Kristin Carlson, and Cassidy Willey. The show was stage managed by Suzie Brady, lighting designed by Shelby Lathrop, and photographed by Caito Foster. Thank you for making this project a reality; we plan to make it an annual event - amplifying more women's voices every year. Onwards!

With gratitude,
Renee and the VOICES team
