Artists in Action

A new series from Skylight Social

Artists in Action 

Thank you for joining us LIVE on Tuesday, September 29 at 7 p.m. (CDT) on Skylight's Facebook and YouTube pages for the second episode of the new Skylight Social series, Artists in Action. Co-hosts Christie Chiles Twillie, frequent Music Director at Skylight, and Michael Unger, Skylight Music Theatre Artistic Director, discussed the importance of diversifying the voices writing for musical theatre. They looked back at how writers of color have historically been under-represented in the musical theatre canon. Skylight is working to support diverse writers with our MKE MaKEs New Works Festival—the inaugural year of which focuses on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) writers. Guests this episode included musician and scholar Wallace Cheatham; performer and director David Flores; and director, educator and performer Sheri Williams Pannell.
