The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Project (LAWTP), was founded in 2007 by Playwright Dee Jae Cox and Songwriter Michele Weiss, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the education, support, promotion and production of live performance projects that are of interest and benefit to women.

The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Project was designed to address the critical need for increased opportunities for women’s voices and perspectives in the Performing Arts, as well as providing educational opportunities and performances that represent women on a broader scale.

The LAWTP, is not simply a producing entity.  The organization works to educate and support women in their effort to bring live performance pieces to the stage, through networking, referrals, production and promotion, as well as actively recruiting, hiring and training female technicians and designers.

In it’s short history, the LAWTP has produced four shows in 2008, 2009 and 2010, as well as two 3-day New Works Festival in 2008 and 2009, and is in production now for its 3rd Festival, Women in the Arts, all showcasing the works of women writers directors and performers.  In addition to several educational workshops and sponsorships of community events.

It is the goal of The LAWTP to work in collaboration with organizations, businesses, theatres, artists and other professionals to increase opportunities for women in all aspects of theatre.
