FUSE Theatre collaborates with communities and individuals to create theatre that matters.
FUSE Theatre collaborates with partners to create theatrical experiences that respect and celebrate social awareness and a spirit of community. We believe in the power of theatre to transform and change our world through socially-engaged theatre practices. Stacey Ardelean, Artistic Director, brings a 30-year career in local theatre and schools. Collaborative projects include The Unfinished Story of Docktown, a community-based project that resulted in a fully produced play about the eviction of a water bourn community in Redwood City, and the development of the REDWOOD CITY PLAY FESTIVAL in 2019 which will premiere Because I Went There, a new community engaged piece about gender equality written by Fuse member, Hedi Flores. Fuse Theatre is most proud of our partnership with the local Dream Club and presenting devised theatre pieces for advocacy events through an internship with young leaders and continuing that program with the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula. Fuse also tours bilingual Theatre for Young Audience plays twice per year to increase the access of youth and families to experience theatre in their own communities at little or no charge. Fuse has received multiple local grants in support of our innovative programming from the San Mateo County Arts Commission, SV Circle Donor Award, Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission and Theatre Bay Area.
