Announcing our Tenth Anniversary SeasonOvernight success takes a decade!
Tennessee Women’s Theater Project celebrates a milestone with the announcement of its productions for 2016-17: this is the company’s Tenth Anniversary season in North Nashville’s Looby Theater on Rosa L. Parks Boulevard.
“It’s been a roller coaster,” says company Founder and Artistic Director Maryanna Clarke. “Parts of every season are like the long, grinding ride to the top, as we choose plays, review festival submissions and do all the behind-the-scenes work of running a nonprofit professional theater. Then, it’s audition and rehearsal time, and suddenly we’re back in the exciting – sometimes scary – race toward another opening night.”
The Tenth Anniversary Season includes two plays, a musical, and the annual Women’s Work Festival of performing and visual arts created by women. The complete calendar:
Annapurna, by Sharr White, October 7 – 23, 2016
The Twelve Dates of Christmas, by Ginna Hoben, December 2 – 11, 2016
