The Bridge Initiative - Women in Theatre

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.


Please join us for our Gala, featuring performance elements, food, drink, a silent auction, and more on Saturday, November 12th, 6-9pm at Helen K Mason Performing Arts, 1333 E Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85034. Click here for details!

The Bridge Initiative will be producing a series of free play readings over the coming months. Stay tuned as titles are announced, and please contact us if you are interested in participating!

The Bridge Initiative project was started in part through support from the Arizona Commission on the Arts which receives its support from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts. Our aim was to go "beyond the pitch."
