Macha Theatre Works is a fearless female non-profit arts organization showcasing exceptional artists, delivering innovative education programs, and staging new theatrical works that feature strong female characters.
Macha envisions a world where fearless female voices thrive.
We strive to bring complex, provocative, empowering, innovative, eclectic, diverse women’s stories to the stage through professional productions, new play reading series, and educational offerings.
Co-founded in 2001 by Kristina Sutherland Rowell and Desiree Prewitt, the company's original name, Macha Monkey Productions, was chosen in memoriam to a dear friend whose adopted wild spider monkey provided excellent storytelling fodder and inspired our founders.
In 2017, the company entered a time of transition and growth under Artistic Director Amy Poisson and Managing Director Kyna Grace Shilling, with Celtic Warrior Goddess Macha as the divine champion of Macha Theatre Works.
