About the Company: The Red Fern Theatre Company

The Red Fern Theatre Company (RFTC), founded by Emilie E. Miller and Melanie Moyer Williams in March 2006, strives to provoke social awareness and change through theatrical productions and outreach. Each play produced by the Red Fern Theatre Company addresses social issues that range in scope from local to global, and each production is paired with a philanthropy whose work relates to the social themes of the play. A portion of the proceeds from each play produced is donated to the designated philanthropy. We also provide our audiences with information on the philanthropy both by introducing their mission at each performance and including information about them in the play’s program. By associating each production with a philanthropic organization, we are able to respond directly to the people actually affected by the issues addressed in the play.

Over the past three seasons, RFTC has produced a diverse range of programming, including ten full length plays as well as workshops and staged readings of one new work which premiered at the New York Fringe Festival in August 2008. Our 2009-2010 Season is dedicated to new plays and will open with the New York Premiere of Shirley Lauro’s ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT.

The RFTC believes in an individual's responsibility to his/her community. Theatre can educate; it can also comfort. It can remind the audience that suffering and joy are feelings felt by all. The Red Fern Theatre Company would like each of its productions to create a lasting impression that fosters a community among those on and off the stage

New York is home to thousands of theatre companies; many of them are committed to socially conscious plays. The Red Fern Theatre Company distinguishes itself by bridging the gap between the theatre we produce and the change it seeks to create. In its partnerships with philanthropies, the RFTC provides the vehicle for which our audiences can give back to their community.
