MTF’s Women/Trans/GNC Roundtable is a monthly virtual drop-in devoted to musical theater creators from marginalized genders.

We recognize that participants come from different lived experiences and perspectives that come out of class, environment, race, range of neurodivergence and range of physical mobility. We strive to lift up and support all voices. In this creative circle, artists are invited to share work and receive optional feedback. We provide a SAFE SPACE for new musical development, as well as a BRAVE SPACE to continue the ongoing conversation about the artistic and professional realities of being a woman, trans, or GNC artist. Join this rotating badass community of innovative musical theater makers (and some special guests!) as we support the development of new projects, challenge each other to push ourselves and our industry, and SUBVERT THIS MF’IN DOMINANT PARADIGM.

The roundtable will run from 6-8pm, and we’ll “open the house” at 5:30pm for some pre-roundtable gathering and conversation. For our October roundtable, this pre-show chat will be a chance to catch up after a summer away and regroup about what it means to be making art in this strange, virtual time.

We ask that everyone takes special care to remember that this space is specifically designed to uplift people of all marginalized genders. By participating, you’re agreeing to respect each participant’s identities fully and, in the event of unintentional harm, accept corrections and actively engage in harm reduction.

You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive community member. We can’t wait to see you there!

If you aren’t sure if you want to share, please sign up with an “I Want to Share” ticket and you will have the option to change to an “I Want to Watch” ticket later.

Please note that in order to accommodate for time, we have to limit our number of sharers beyond what we can generally accommodate at in-person roundtables. The earlier you sign up to share and the earlier you submit your materials (if you have materials to submit), the more likely you will be able to share. Everyone else who wants to share will be put on the “waitlist” and we’ll do our best to squeeze in more as time permits.

“I Want to Share” tickets will close Saturday at 6pm (48 hours before the roundtable). Since space is limited, we will contact you via email 24 hours prior to the roundtable to let you know if you’re on the list to share or if you’re on the waitlist.

“I Want to Watch” tickets will close on Monday at 5pm (1 hour before the roundtable).
