Arena Stage, artistic associate & collaborator

The voice of American theater resident in our nations capital – Arena Stage’s vision is to galvanize the transformative power of theater to understand who we are as Americans.

As part of my ongoing collaborations with Arena Stage, I have experience with producing, commercial partnerships, season planning, new work development, contracting, budgeting, casting, cross-departmental collaboration, audience-building programming, artist relations, and AD support.

Arena Stage Theater Artists Marketplace is a new model for regional theaters to connect art, artists and their artistry directly with the public. You can commission or purchase a work of art safely, with no in-person contact, from the artists and artisans who have graced Arena’s stages. The pandemic disrupted the ability for artists and theaters to earn income. When you make a purchase through the Marketplace, you are generating much-needed financial support for artists and a percentage supports Arena Stage.
