The Weird Sisters Theatre Project


About

The Weird Sisters Theatre Project was founded in 2012 by a coalition of artists associated with the Atlanta Shakespeare Company. Our Mission is to foster and cultivate opportunities for women in the theatrical arts. The Weird Sisters Theatre Project is committed to creating theatre by women, for everyone.

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company became the Fiscal Sponsor of the Weird Sisters Theatre Project in the Spring of 2013. This collaboration allows the Atlanta Shakespeare Company to further its mission to foster the growth of up-and-coming theatre companies and allows the Weird Sisters to develop and grow under the expertise of a well-established Atlanta theatre company.




What Are Audiences Saying about The Weird Sisters?

“Powerful women. Perfectly cast. Damn-near flawless. Incredibly grounded, hilarious, and moving.”
“Without question one of my favorite nights at the theatre in a long, long time.”
“I have to highly, highly, recommend that you make some time to see this show…it’s great acting, a great script, and (close to my heart) an ALL-FEMALE cast doing great work.”
“Anton in Show Business is the first step in, hopefully, a long journey for The Weird Sisters. It’s got some of the best acting that I’ve seen this year. If you’re a fan of theatre in Atlanta, you owe it to yourself to make the time to see this show.”
“Loved, loved, loved it! Don’t miss this magical, hilarious, and touching night of theatre, at a play about the magic, laughter, and love of a life in the theatre.”
ArtsAtl.com named Anton in Show Business one of its Notable Shows of 2012

This season will show us friendship can be found in many places, and when the going gets tough - women get tougher:

Coming your way this June, we will present Jane Martin’s outrageous comedy Criminal Hearts. Don’t miss what the Detroit News called, “Loads of fun…a wonderful, farcical comedy!” From the writer of The Weird Sisters’ 2012 hit production
of
Anton in Show Business. The show will be directed by Nichole Palmietto, with Assistant Director Annie York, and will feature founding member Tiffany Porter.

Next Up: we bring you Sarah Ruhl’s graceful drama Late: A Cowboy Song in July. This one is for all “the lady cowboys of heart and mind who ride outside the city limits of convention.” The show will be directed by founding member Jaclyn Hofmann, with Assistant Director Megan Rose, Music Direction by Daniel Hilton, and will feature founding member Kelly Criss in the lead.

Join us Monday May 5th at 7:00pm
at the Shakespeare Tavern for a Fiesta you don’t want to miss!
