WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Airmid Theatre Company, a non-profit organization, brings the arts into a deeper dimension for the community.

 

The productions are all first class!

 

 

The crisp acting and directing, as well as the plays chosen provide exciting, enjoyable entertainment. I enjoy becoming more familiar with works from women of various eras.  

 

Airmid Theatre Company is great!

I love the readings of plays written by women from years ago and the dialog it inspires. Even those written hundreds of years ago are still so relevant today.

 

Women, their place in society and their experiences are universal.

Airmid brings the work of forgotten or unknown female playwrights to life for today’s audience. Their productions are profound, address-ing issues that are both universal and timeless. 

 

Thank you Airmid for keeping these works alive.
