About Face Theatre (AFT) is a nationally recognized, award-winning queer theatre company that seeks to be a center for queer art; is committed to and known for artistic excellence; cultivates, promotes and produces LGBTQIA+ stories and artists; provides a brave space and a creative outlet for LGBTQIA+ youth; and it educates, challenges, and entertains audiences. AFT is currently in its 21st season, and has three programming arms: a mainstage season, a nationally recognized youth theatre and education program, and developmental programs to promote new work through workshops and readings.
AFT seeks enthusiastic new board members to join our team who are passionate believers in the vital role that the arts play in our community. Board members will serve as advocates and ambassadors for the company and can get involved in a multitude of ways— including providing financial support, sharing skills and expertise, broadening our audience and support bases, supporting special events, fundraising campaigns, and attending and promoting performances.
About Face is at a momentous turning point as we usher in a leadership transition, in search of a new artistic director. Additionally, current planning goals (2015 – 2018) include: raising AFT’s artistic profile; promoting diversity and inclusion in all facets of the company; raising the profile of the youth theatre; achieving an unrestricted budget surplus; expanding AFT’s audience reach; and providing a creative hub to support other theatre artists that align with AFT’s mission and values.
