It's Women's History Month

Women of the world want and deserve an equal future free from stigma, stereotypes and violence; a future that’s sustainable, peaceful, with equal rights and opportunities for all. To get us there, the world needs women at every table where decisions are being made. This month we honor our own Anne Warren Clark, Managing Director, and other admirable women who make a difference in our lives, and in the world.

Hattie McDaniel, Actor and Humanist

“What is the thing that Hollywood demands most? Sincerity. No place in the world will pay such a high price for this admirable trait.”

 

Anne Warren Clark, Educator & Performing Artist

Anne Warren Clark is not only our Managing Director, she’s an educator, singer, and actor of considerable renown. We’re grateful she is leading our team.

Amanda Gorman, Poet Laureate of the United States

“When day comes, we step out of the shade, aflame and unafraid.
The new dawn blooms as we free it.
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.”

Dr. Jill Biden, Educator and First Lady

“We all have the obligation to share our knowledge, to lift up other women. It’s up to every one of us to make it possible for every little girl who dares to dream big.”

A Message from Artistic Director, Jared Sakren

TO YOU:  OUR LOYAL PATRONS AND COMMUNITY,
We here at The Playhouse are working very hard to plan a full season of great plays starting in the Fall of 2021.  We will be presenting the very best selection of productions that will thrill you, move you, entertain you and make you think— doing all the great things that only live theatre can do.
We appreciate your continued support and patience as we navigate through these challenging times, and we have your health and safety at the forefront of our concerns. When you return to the Playhouse we will ensure you will not have to worry about the safety or health of our spaces.  In the meantime, we will roll out the new season sometime in February. I think you will all be very excited by it, and that you’ll want to secure your tickets right away to all these great shows!  Thank you all again for being such passionate and loyal supporters of The Playhouse.  I cannot tell you how gratifying it is to know how important we are to you and our community!

6th Street Playhouse joins the voices in our community and country who condemn hatred, violence, and racial injustice...

The Arts are a place where our community can come to hear messages that bring us together, that unite us, that form a common bond with all humanity, and it is as artists that we can help shape the world we live in. We will not stand with those who would turn us against each other, nor will we condone the unjust treatment of anyone because of the color of their skin, their ethnicity, or their background. Our theatre dedicates itself to ensuring that all people are welcome inside our doors, and, when we are allowed to resume activities, in every activity we conduct — be it classes, performances, rehearsals, in our staffing, our board and volunteers — we will assure inclusivity and diversity at all levels.
