Our 2018-19 Season
The first annual season kick off
At the start of the season, we brought together our families and friends to kick off our programming the best way we knew how. A party at The New Women Space. The evening consisted of live performances with food and beverages served all night long, and every penny made went to our first developmental workshop of DREAM HOU$E by Eliana Pipes.
Coming up this summer, we’re producing a one-night-only production of DREAM HOU$E! Stay tuned for more info.
“DREAM HOU$E” by eliana pipes
From a first draft to the first public presentation, we spent the fall workshopping DREAM HOU$E, a brand new play written by our dear friend and Checkmark alum Eliana Pipes! After a week of rehearsal at WP Theater, the development process culminated in a public presentation at INTAR Theater for industry friends and family.
Synopsis: Two Latinx sisters on an HGTV-style show are selling their family home, hoping to capitalize on the gentrification in the “changing neighborhood.” In the process they discover details of the family’s past and the potential for their future, forcing them to grapple with what’s lost and gained in the quest for upward mobility.
To continue the play’s development, we are bringing DREAM HOU$E to Ars Nova’s ANT Fest on June 12th at 7pm! We are fundraising to ensure this experience will be accessible for all the artists involved. Learn more about our mission by clicking below!
Support Checkmark Theatre Company
Checkmark truly believes that our mission is worth fighting for, but we cannot do it alone.
Not only are we fundraising to program our 2018-19 Season, but we are also fundraising to ensure that every artist giving their time and talent to Checkmark receives a financial stipend in return. One of the reasons why disparities are so strong in our industry, and why companies dedicated to underrepresented voices are still necessary, is because of a lack of opportunity due to limited financial resources. Our mission is to uplift unheard voices and, as a result, we strive to financially invest in those artists as well. Join us.
Checkmark is sponsored by Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As a result, contributions for the purposes of Checkmark Theatre Company are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. making all donations 100% tax deductible.
