Review for Tennessee Women's Theater Project, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

attending the performances and hearing the audience's positive reaction to the stories and the storytellers.

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!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
