Maggie Keenan-Bolger & Honest Accomplice Theatre to Host Event for Queer Women and Trans* People in the Performing Arts, 4/28

Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Honest Accomplice Theatre will host a networking event geared towards increasing the visibility and opportunities for queer women and trans* people in the performing arts. As two of the most under-represented groups on stage, this event offers us the opportunity to collaborate and combine our resources to support the current and upcoming work of queer women and trans* artists.

Companies and organizations doing work promoting the visibility of queer women and trans* people will have the opportunity to promote their shows, classes, casting calls and organizational needs.

Professionals and students in the performing arts will get the chance to meet with other companies and individuals interested in hiring, casting or otherwise collaborating.

This event is open to actors, administrators, agents, arrangers, casting directors, choreographers,
company managers, composers, critics, dancers, designers, directors, dramaturgs, educators, general
managers, historians, journalists, librettists, lyricists, musicians, performance artists, playwrights, press
agents, producers, spoken word poets, stage managers, teaching artists and theatre technicians.

The first hour of the session will be dedicated to various networking activities followed by a chance to further engage with the people in attendance.

At 9pm the event will continue at a local bar for a more informal, social meeting. Location TBD.

Honest Accomplice Theatre is dedicated to the creation of new works on topics that are often silenced or
seen as shameful in our country. We present those topics in a public forum from multiple perspectives.
Our theatre is produced by the community, with the community and for the community.
