9th Annual Women’s Performance Art Festival for Stockyards Theatre Project at a new Venue and Extra Performances


WHAT:            For the past 8 years Stockyards Theatre Project has presented a Women’s Performance Art Festival filled with song, dance, scenes, comedy, monologues and cutting edge performance art.  This year marks the 9th annual festival with the theme “Buried Dreams, Hidden Treasure” in a brand new venue for the company.  Stockyards Theatre Project is proud to produce this year’s festival at the Prop Thtr.  The Prop Thtr is home to an amazing space and has an incredible group of theatre professionals that have welcomed this long running festival and Stockyards Theatre Project with open arms.


                        Each year the Women’s Performance Art Festival has spotlighted female writers and performers from many genres and the 9th annual fest is going even farther.  Due to the incredible response we’ve received we needed to included a fourth performance for the festival.  The extra show will run on Sunday at 3:00 for a more family oriented show including the talented young dancers of Matrix Dance Improv and three generations of one family with a mother being accompanied by her musician daughter and the grandmother exhibiting her art work.


                        This year will definitely live up to the theme and release all those “Buried Dreams, Hidden Treasure” through Stockyards Theatre Projects 9th Annual Women’s Performance Art Festival.
