About Us

The History

In the fall of 2016, as the presidential election loomed, Maggie Regier had a creative project due – with little to no guidelines. Frustrated with the lack of opportunity she had witnessed as a young actress and storyteller, she decided the best way to change those opportunities was to make them for herself and her fellow womxn. She designed her dream company in the hopes of building a great team and producing meaningful work.

Cast of The Taming on Inauguration Day.

On election night 2016, her goals took a slight shift. Lauren Gunderson announced the Inauguration Day Project and she found a group of womxn to put up a staged reading of The Taming to raise money for the Rape Recovery Center and provide solace on the day Tr*mp was sworn into office. In the spring of 2017 she put up a staged reading of Natural Shocks on the anniversary of the Columbine shooting to raise funds for Everytown for Gun Safety and awareness about domestic violence.

The Now
