Welcome to firebrand theatre
Based in the vibrant city of Chicago, Firebrand Theatre is a feminist musical theatre company that empowers Women+* and challenges the gender norms of the theatre industry through hiring practices, programming, and activism. We have a strong commitment to intersectionality and are dedicated to uplifting the voices of Women+ from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. We vow to push our industry forward in a safe, collaborative, and creative environment.
"Without overlooking the differences of race, sexuality, religion, and class, I am proposing that our critical practice should be multicultural in a postcolonial open-space of women of the world as equal subjects." -Musa W. Dube, Hope Abundant
*When we say Women+ we mean people who are cis women, trans, non-binary, or gender-nonconforming people, and all gender identities which have been systematically oppressed throughout history in the theatre and beyond. -This definition is attributed to WP Theater
