Bootless Artworks is a non-profit arts organization of dedicated professional artists and theater enthusiasts created to enhance, enliven and educate as to the art of theater and performance.
Bootless Artworks produces and presents an extensive collection of works that are both artistically challenging and innovative while remaining accessible to audiences. In fulfilling this mission, Bootless Artworks provides rewarding and highly-entertaining experiences to all in its community.
Bootless presents/produces 4-5 fully staged productions (plays/musicals/concerts) each season. Bootless also runs Summer Boot Camp for students ages 7 to 15. Currently, Bootless is a traveling company as we do not have a permanent home theater base. A crutial part to Bootless' on-going success is to secure a permanent home theater.
