Building Bridges: A Gala Celebration Wrap-up

Our inaugural gala was an unqualified success artistically, professionally, fiscally, and in terms of community building. We thank everyone who participated and are pleased to report that our fundraising efforts this year have produced over $7,000 of funds to put towards our work in 2017. Updates to our donor list are pending.

Educating and empowering... Join us! We're bridgin' it!


The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre aims to incubate and celebrate female theatre artists, bridging the divide between academia and the professional world, with an emphasis on developing new work by female writers and presenting Southwestern premieres.

The Bridge Initiative project was started in part through support from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, an agency of the State of Arizona, whose mission is to create opportunities for all Arizonans to participate in and experience the arts.
