Are you involved in or interested in creating theatrical productions in the San Francisco Bay Area?
We are a group of playwrights, composers, choreographers, directors, casting directors, set designers, sound designers, lighting designers, video designers / videographers / photographers, stage managers, technical directors, actors, dancers, musicians, conductors, stage hands, costume designers, prop makers, producers, venue staff, sign language interpreters (ASL), educators, trainers, and funders of theater.
This project provides a common ground for those interested in dramatic and musical theatre, professional and amateur theater, commercial and non-profit theatre, including non-traditional theatrical events (performance art, street theater, pop-up theatre, home theatre, puppet shows, etc.) with activities including, for example:
- Discussions of all aspects of theatre creation and production
- Exchanging information on opportunities available
- Collaboration on incubating audience participatory plays and musicals based on social, political, economic, and environmental change (SPEEC) themes
- Workshops of plays and musicals under development
- Readings and staged readings of plays and musicals for educational and motivational purposes
This group particularly fosters events that are inclusive and affirming of people based on class, race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, age, etc.
Meetup participants are encouraged to propose meetups related to the purposes of the group.
