Theatre Makers

The Theatre Makers Project provides common ground for diverse communities to collaborate on, incubate, and stage both newly created and historically relevant audience-participatory plays based on social, political, economic, and environmental change (SPEEC) themes.


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 venue, 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, 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, and other identities.

Meetup participants are encouraged to propose meetups related to the purposes of the group.
