WARRIORS FOR PEACE FUNDRAISING GALA

On Sunday, August 18th, 2019, 5:30-9pm, Warriors For Peace Theatre (WFP) will be hosting a fundraising gala for our debut theatrical production of Julius Caesar. Held at the LA LGBT Center's Ed Gould Plaza, come join us for an elegant and vintaged themed evening of live music, swing dancing, a performance of selected scenes from Tennessee Williams plays, drinks and eats, networking, and a live preview of our Julius Caesar production opening on November 30th at the Hudson theatre in Hollywood. All proceeds will go to funding our unique and exciting production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. Set in the world of modern warfare with gender bending roles and a diverse cast, watch actual combat veterans bring this story of war and politics to life like you have never seen! Directed by Ann Noble.



WHO WE ARE

WFP is a collaboration of US military veterans and civilians who believe in the healing effects of art. Our company provides catharsis for those who have served and promotes peace by way of the theatre arts. Our projects are designed to build bridges between communities, support disenfranchised groups, promote ethnic diversity, empower women, narrow the civil-military divide, and foster peace among nations. WFP has a simple philosophy: Who better to promote peace than those who have seen the face of war? We believe art transcends politics and brings people together. WFP provides artists a venue to use their craft to have a positive impact on the world around them and the communities in which they live.

WHAT WE DO

WFP is not just a good idea. We have a history of success that shows how powerful the collaboration is when civilians and veterans come together to help our war fighters heal, empower people, and promote peace through building bridges. Here are just a few examples of the work we have done in the past year:

FIGHTING DISCRIMINATION WITH SHAKESPEARE

WFP assembled 28 actors to recite a famous Shakespearean monologue. Based on historical events, this powerful piece depicts Shakespeare’s attempt to find the humanity in people and is a plea for us to see each other as connected and not the “other:”
