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$E by Eliana Pipes.
In the winter, we gathered our community together to celebrate Galentine’s Day, and to start fundraising for what would become Checkmark’s first, full production: DREAM HOU$E by Eliana Pipes!
“DREAM HOU$E” by eliana pipes
After 29 Hours of rehearsal at WP Theater, the development process culminated in a public presentation at INTAR Theater for industry friends and family. In the spring, DREAM HOU$E was accepted into Ars Nova’s ANT Fest, and became Checkmark’s first ever, full production on June 12th, 2019.
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.
Support Checkmark Theatre Company
Checkmark truly believes that our mission is worth fighting for, but we cannot do it alone.
While telling the stories of underrepresented artists, and employing teams with a majority of women of color at all times, Checkmark is also fundraising to ensure every artist is paid fairly for their time and talent.
One of the reasons why disparities are so strong in our industry, and why companies like Checkmark are still necessary, is because of a lack of fairly compensated opportunities in our industry. The best work is made by investing in your collaborators both artistically and financially. Join us on that mission.
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.
