We’re proud to share our 17/18 Season with you. Art, Activism, Protest, History, Dreams — and 100% more Chicken Suits than last year.
We continue our mission of innovation, equity, and artistic growth this year with our ongoing programs designed to build bridges across communities, including the Ticket Bank, the Ambassador Project, Studio Suppers, Open Studio, OntheBoards.tv, the Performance Production Program, and more.
On the Boards invests in leading contemporary performing artists near and far, and connects them to a diverse range of communities interested in forward-thinking art and ideas. The present is exciting and the future even more so.
We’ll see you soon!
