Open Stage Project aims to achieve gender parity in the backstage theatrical arts by educating, mentoring, and empowering under-served high school girls.*
*We use an inclusive definition of "girls," “women,” and “female,” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members’ identities, such as but not limited to race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.
Open Stage Project teaches job-readiness with an eye toward workforce development in our Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3 programs. We focus on resume-building and job training to close the gender gap backstage. Our events include performances, career conversation, studio tours, panels, and mentorship opportunities..
