TheatreFIRST, in residence at Berkeley’s Live Oak Theater, creates a social hub where, through the art of storytelling, all voices get heard. Dedicated to telling the world’s stories through multiple, simultaneous viewpoints, TheatreFIRST has redeveloped its lens so that a more actual world will be reflected and a more actual world will attend. Inspired by the above tenet, TheatreFIRST looks to foster new, necessary stories by new and established artists through collaborative residencies; the work produced ultimately becoming their next main stage season. TheatreFIRST’s productions are supported by an outreach program that gives the community entry points in to their stories as well as next-step programming that build on our work’s themes.
