A STATEMENT FROM THE WOMEN'S THEATRE PROJECT
The Women’s Theatre Project
February 9, 2015
BOCA RATON, FL: The start of the New Year and 2015 season ushers in an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the fact, that The Women's Theatre Project (TWTP) was able to fulfill the intention of its mission, and create a lasting legacy. TWTP was fueled by the desires of professional women in theatre, who were drawn to the concept of creating a cultural profile of a diverse female voice on stage. Our choices broke with stereotypical portrayals of women propelled by the media, and we created theatrical opportunities for women of all shapes, ages, and races. Our 33 main stage productions, numerous staged readings, and the creation of Girl Play allowed our audiences to encounter the full spectrum of our artistic vision. In addition we participated in special projects like the Lysistrata Project, (a worldwide reading for world peace), and provided unique theatrical experiences such as 6 Women Playwrights Turning 60 in 2006 - a nationwide playwright festival. Our audiences have followed us to our 5 different homes in 3 different counties, and now we are concluding our theatrical run. Since our inception, we have solicited and received hundreds of scripts from playwrights locally, nationally, and worldwide, allowing us to produce Southeastern, and worldwide premieres of new and impactful plays, utilizing the skills of South Florida's finest talents.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, we thank all the various artists who have worked and passionately believed in us, and those who will continue to develop and perpetuate the vision we created.
President and Artistic Director
