COVID19 - "I Care" Campaign
These are very difficult moments for Rattlestick - as they are for most theaters. We have suspended performances to The Siblings Play, and we do not know when we will be able to gather in our theater in the near future.


However, now more than ever, we are committed to our mission, artists, and our community. To that end, we are introducing COVID19 - " I Care" Campaign to underwrite our online programming that will center on artistic sharing and community conversations.


Your donation to the COVID19 "I Care" Campaign will help us further our work of using theatrical expression to provide care for our communities. This at-home screening purchase and donation will support Rattlestick and help us in our mission to remain a vibrant cultural organization once this turbulent period is behind us.


Thank you for being a crucial part of our Theater.


In Solidarity,


Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
SOLDIERGIRLS SPART*A
Rattlestick Theater presents a benefit concert of SOLDIERGIRLS: a new musical with book and lyrics by Em Weinstein and music by Emily Johnson-Erday. This free online benefit will raise money for SPART*A (Service Members, Partners, Allies for Respect and Tolerance for All) and will take place on Monday, August 31st at 7pm ET. Performers include: Jenn Collela, Chilina Kennedy, Lilli Cooper, Ezra Menas, Melanie Field, Jessie Shelton, Anna Crivelli, Danielle Chaves, Hannah Van Sciver, Madeline Barker and more!


SOLDIERGIRLS is a two-person musical that uses real letters and a collage of found and original text to look at love, liberation, and lesbianism in the US Army’s Women’s Army Corps in World War II. This evening features an all-star cast of Broadway performers, who give voice to the two women in the show from across the country and the world. SOLDIERGIRLS has been previously workshopped with New York Theater Workshop, Rattlestick Theater, and was made possible by a commission from En Garde Arts.


SPART*A is a group of transgender people who currently serve or have served in the military. Membership is open to transgender (to include non-binary and gender-nonconforming) individuals currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. We also offer smaller groups for families of transgender service members, veterans, and allies. SPART*A’s mission is to advocate for our actively serving transgender military members, veterans, and their families. SPART*A provides our members with a peer support network, assistance in navigating military transgender policy and health care, and educational resources for their professional development. SPART*A actively coordinates and collaborates with other LGBT advocacy organizations to promote an inclusive military environment that values the contributions of all Americans with the desire to serve. www.spartapride.org
