The League of Professional Theatre Women

champions women in theatre.

Who: Our membership includes artists and practitioners of all backgrounds, across multiple disciplines, working in the commercial and non-profit sectors.

What: We advocate for opportunities and visibility for female theatre professionals.

How: The League connects members with colleagues in artist service groups and performing arts organizations in the U.S. and around the globe, supporting dialogue, mentoring, and collaboration.

We spearhead vibrant public programming, advocacy projects, and transformational initiatives that create community, cultivate leadership and professional development, and raise awareness of the importance of nurturing women’s voices.

Our events, media, and publications celebrate industry luminaries, preserve the legacy of historic visionaries, and shine a spotlight on the importance of striving for gender parity and of fostering a diversity of expression, both in the theatre world and in the world at large.
