Theatre Makers

On Tuesday, September 11, we are also having a special performance and fundraiser for Climate Justice! Limited seats at a private venue, with a $50 tax deductible donation. Refreshments and festivities. Get tickets here.

Check out the Theatre Makers Meetup sponsored by the Ritual Art Troupe. (Join the group to get email notifications of upcoming meetings. You probably have to sign up for free to join.)

Please volunteer, donate funds, and donate food, materials, or equipment to support this activity.

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, educators, trainers, and funders of theater.

This Meetup 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
  • Workshops of plays and musicals under development
  • Readings and staged readings of plays for educational and motivational purposes

This group will particularly foster events that are inclusive and affirming of – rather than oppressive toward – 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.
