I worked on a play with Maryanna and Chris and was amazed at the amount of heart and soul the two of them put into this theater company. They both are totally committed to excellence and are willing to work as much and as hard as it takes. I hope they will attract more volunteers over the years to help their fabulous cause. It's a lot of pressure for just the two of them. I was a bit overwhelmed at times with the amount of work involved and Maryanna was cool and calm and focused and the show went on without a hitch. They produce professional interesting shows and many times offer premieres to the Nashville community- which not many theater companies in town are willing to risk. I had a very positive learning experience from being involved with this company and hope to work with them again in the future.

... frequently quirky and always entertaining and interesting. TWTP is an opportunity to see 1st class work that wouldn't otherwise be available. Speaking as a music professional that plays a lot of theater, this is one of my favorite theater companies in the middle Tennessee area.

I have seen many of their shows and acted in two plays and a Women's Work performance. They not only have artistic integrity, they treat all artists and their audiences with respect. TWTP is dedicated to their vision for theatre and women in the arts.

TWTP is serving this community in ways that no other theatre company in middle Tennessee is. Their focus on women playwrights and strong women characters is what makes this theatre so special and so needed. Maryanna Clarke, who is at the helm of the company, along with her dedicated husband, Chris Clarke, have given their sweat, blood and tears to keep this company and their mission forging ahead. Part of their deep dedication is evidenced in a competitive wage for their actors along with offering affordable ticket prices and giving back to the community by offering discounted or free tickets to underprivileged women who wouldn't normally go to the theatre. What they have done in the past 5 years is nothing short of amazing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with them as an actor and getting to know Maryanna and Chris who are wonderful people and theatre artists.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great! A theatre company relies on volunteers and freelance artists that are dedicated to the mission of the company and creating a great piece of art, TWTP is no exception.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

oh my gosh! Buy a space, have salaried positions, have longer runs, employ more artists and crew, expand their season, start other outreach or education programs, use more technology to reach a wider audience...so many things!

One need only hear the story of the formation and mission of the TWTP to understand how vital this organization is to Middle Tennessee and beyond. Warriors Don't Cry is just one in a series of original or premiere productions to appreciate how TWTP holds up a less distorted mirror to nature, and how that contributes not only to women in the performing arts, but to an enriched civilization for all.

I have been a board member of TWTP since its inception and have seen every production at least once. I am also an actor locally, both in community theater and professional productions. Maryanna Clarke's commitment to quality offerings and reaching underserved audiences is second to none. On a shoestring (and with the help of an equally deeply committed husband) she has managed to present thoughtful, well-written and entertaining new plays to the Nashville community that have the look of quality, not shoestring! She is able to elicit fine performances from the actors and develops quite a loyalty among those who have worked with her. I always leave one of TWTP's productions happy that I spent time there.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

thought-provoking, well-produced and well-acted plays that make me wish more people had attended with me.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a space of it own, pay its artistic director a decent salary, and hire additional staff (marketing, perhaps!)

I have worked with the TWTP since it's first production in 2005. Having worked both onstage and backstage I can honestly say that my experience with them each and every time had been fantastic. Maryanna Clarke has an incredible eye for material that is new and exciting to produce and she brings together some of the strongest ensembles I have had the pleasure of working with. I have been a professional in the field for more than 20 years and worked with many different organizations and, in my experience, the TWTP continually brings some of the highest quality, professionally produced shows to Middle TN.

Tennessee Women's Theater Project provides a voice for female playwrights and actors in a society in which theatre primarily consists of the "male story"--currently only 18% of produced plays in this country are by female playwrights! TWTP seeks to corrects this. TWTP is also a joy to work for; they not only create a nurturing environment for creative freedom and artistic expression from their artists, but they are dedicated to making sure their artists receive a fair wage for their work, even when the company is struggling financially. Their shows are high in calibre, and have brought audiences to tears of joy and laughter. They are a huge asset to the Nashville community and deserve to be recognized.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching their fantastic shows, as well as being a part of them!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them money to buy their own space.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their appreciation for women's creativity and an outlet for the female voice in the arts!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, passionate, professional and kind. A true family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Finally build its own theatre space instead of depending on renting it!

Ways to make it better...

they had had more resources to hire more technical staff so that the director and her husband wouldn't have to take on more than their share!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial need in this rough economy.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I no longer live in Tennessee and I miss this organization dearly, but still support them from afar as much as possible!
