Bay Area Women's Theatre Festival
Celebrating Women-plus and Non-Binary Artists across the Bay Area
When COVID shut down our 2020 festival just after its beginning, we worked to get online content to you for entertainment, catharsis and community during this time!
Every artist involved in any content put up by baWTF - streaming or recorded - was compensated (in a few cases, artists asked that their payment go to a cause close to their heart). Thank you for your support. We've left this page up to remind you of what was to be...
3 months of plays, musicals, readings, events, a 24-hour performance festival - and we want you there with us!
Our BIGGEST event is AMPLIFY! a 24-Hour Celebration of Women+ in Performance. We are taking over the entire Brava! for Women in the Arts building in SF's Mission District and from 6pm on April 18th-6pm on April 19th, we are filling every stage, lobby and hallway with performances by your favorite Bay Area artists - and hopefully a few that become your favorites! Join us Saturday April 18 and Sunday April 19, 2020 (yes, you can stay all 24 hours if you would like) - children's programming is primarily on Sunday morning and early afternoon. More below...
Ticketing for our Classical Reading Series & Women of Color Reading Series are available as details for each reading are finalized. These readings are FREE to the public - these are plays we want SEEN and HEARD - but we will accept donations to help us pay our artists for their work and fund the festival as a whole. All of our readings are listed on our Full Festival Calendar.
