Help ensure a bright future for Asian American theatre and visibility for the Asian American community.
East West Players is the longest running theater of color and the largest producer of Asian American artistic work in the country. Now in its 54th season, East West Players has been raising the visibility of the Asian American experience by presenting inventive world-class theatrical productions, developing artists of color, and providing impactful youth education programs. Every day, our dedicated staff, volunteers and collaborating artists work to serve our community. Now, without performances or events bringing us together in person, EWP must rely on our community’s generosity from afar to make sure there is a theatre to come back to.
In March of 2020, operations were interrupted by the Covid-19 virus. This interruption included suspending performances for the largest show of its season, the Sondheim musical Assassins, as well as postponing its theater for youth tour and its gala. Since then East West Players has moved to move what programs it can online include its classes and popular EWP Presents series.
We kindly ask for your donation to support our mission and invest the next generations of Asian American artists. Your contribution today will help EWP keep staff on payroll, create digital content while we are Safer At Home, and offer online education opportunities for artists and audiences alike. While the ghost light keeps the stage safe in the dark, your gift today is a promise that the footlights will shine brightly again in our theatre.
