Serene Mastrianni introduces listeners to a unique theater experience. Inspired by the book ‘Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide’ by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn, WAM Theatre (WAM = Women’s Action Movement) was founded in 2009 by Kristen van Ginhoven and Leigh Strimbeck to use theatre to benefit women and girls worldwide. Both Kristen and Leigh are professional actors, directors and theatre educators who are engaged in the issue of women’s rights worldwide. WAM Theatre’s philanthropic mission is two-fold. First, to raise funds to create professional theatrical events that explore issues relating to women and girls. Second, to donate a portion of the proceeds from those events to organizations that benefit women and girls worldwide. WAM Theatre is based in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Capital Region of New York State.
