Open Stage Project Organizes First-ever Female Union Panel For Young Women Interested In Backstage Theatrical Arts
Open Stage Project seeks to empower women's voices in all areas of theatrical storytelling and to increase the number of women working backstage by providing education and mentorship opportunities to NYC high school students.
In order to teach young women the benefits and requirements of theater and film union membership, Open Stage Project is hosting the first-ever Female Union Panel. This panel, slated for April 9th, will bring together professional women in IATSE and AFM, industry professionals, and high school women to discuss union membership.
Other programs offered by Open Stage Project include Broadway and Off-Broadway performances and talkbacks with female backstage professionals; technical theater shop tours; and mentoring and internship placement. All programs are free of charge for female-identifying NYC high school students aged 14-18 interested in learning about career pathways in the backstage theatrical arts.
Admission to the panel is FREE for industry professionals and NYC high school students. The Panel will take place in midtown on Tuesday, April 9th at 4:30pm. Exact location shared in emailed RSVP.
