Or Check Out Our Access Initiative

radical accessibility

Our commitment to accessibility through every stage of the creative process lowers the barriers of access, allowing all audiences to see new and reimagined works that broaden perspectives and inspire dialogue.

“Struggling under the economic and physical distress of Crohn’s disease, I needed to make a theater for everyone- those facing economic barriers, d/Deaf, disabled, and first-time theatergoers.”

— -Aaron Sawyer, Artistic Director

THE RED REVOLUTION

We believe in producing bold new work, paying our artists, offering free access to every performance, and prioritizing accessibility in every stage of the creative process.

Red Theater’s #FreeTheater and #AccessInitiative are made possible through the generosity of corporations, foundations, and donors like you!
