The 2021 New Theatre Initiative


initiative noun.

ini·​tia·​tive | \ i-ˈni-shə-tiv

1: an introductory step 

2: energy or aptitude displayed in initiation of action 

New things are hardly ever easy and are only made more difficult in light of the current climate. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken so much from communities across the world, and it is the responsibility of those who have the platform and ability to rebuild to do so. 

Cardboard Cinema Productions has the platform and ability to bring people together to enjoy live theatre.  However, our vision for the 2021 New Theatre Initiative is much more than that. 

Theatrical productions companies have an opportunity to not only rebuild what they previously produced, but also aspire to create a new culture of inclusive and innovative entertainment. 

With this in mind, we have organized our priorities to follow these three tenets:

1. Bring high-quality/low-cost theatre to Central Texas.​

2. Promote artistic literacy.

3. Invest in young artists and new art. 

Cardboard Cinema Productions is taking the initiative to create new opportunities for artistic exploration and engagement. If you would like to learn how you can become a part of our 2021 New Theatre Initiative, contact us via the form below.
