Ridgefield is a special place for the arts. It has rich history, world-class practitioners, and a devoted audience that understands both the economic and and personal impact the arts has on our lives. What Ridgefield didn’t have until this year, was a professional theatre company dedicated to new plays.
Thrown Stone’s mission is to fill that indispensable need. We believe new theatre gives voice to a community in the culture at large, and is an essential marker of vitality. As we prepare what’s next, we want to share how we’re going to achieve that mission — because HOW we do things is as important as WHAT we do.
For Thrown Stone, it all comes down to our six core values: Cultivation, Innovation, Place, Collaboration, Integrity, and Technology. We do it here, we do it together, and we do it right — and that means we compensate our artists. If these values resonate with you, we invite you to support our first full production:
There is a lot going on behind the scenes right now, and we’re very excited for what we’re about to announce. Sorry to tease, but if you want a hint — it definitely has to do with the Collaboration value we mentioned above. More news to come!
