The Red Fern Theatre Company, founded by Emilie E. Miller and Melanie Moyer Williams in March 2006, strives to provoke social awareness and change through theatrical productions and outreach. Each play produced by the Red Fern Theatre Company addresses social issues that range in scope from local to global, and each production is paired with a philanthropy whose work relates to the social themes of the play. A portion of the proceeds from each play produced is donated to the designated philanthropy. The Red Fern Theatre also provides its audiences with information on the philanthropy both by introducing their mission at each performance and including information about them in the play's program. By associating each production with a philanthropic organization, the Red Fern Theatre is able to respond directly to the people actually affected by the issues addressed in the play.
For The Radiant, a portion of the box office proceeds will be shared with the Association for Women in Science. In 1971, at the annual Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology meeting, flyers were posted inviting women scientists to a champagne mixer and meeting to encourage the exchange of ideas and solutions to overcoming job discrimination, lower pay, and professional isolation. Those 27 women who took the initiative to make science a better place for women founded the Association for Women in Science, today's premiere leadership organization advocating the interests of women in science and technology. For nearly 40 years, the Association for Women in Science has fought for equity and career advancement for women - from the bench to the board room. The mission of the New York Metropolitan chapter is to empower women to enter, remain, and advance in science careers both inside and outside academia. The Association for Women in Science provides professional development training and a supportive community with opportunities for networking and mentoring.
The Radiant performs Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8:00pm, Sundays at 3:00pm. There is one additional performance Monday March 4, at 7:00pm. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at www.web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/920888 or 866-811-4111.
