SHIELD MAIDEN POST SHOWS PANEL DISCUSSIONS

GET YOUR COMMUNITY INVOLVED!

Melanie includes a post shows panel discussion with local women warriors. It’s a great way for your community to shine a light on local women leading the way and for the audience to participate in discussion with the playwright and performer herself!

Here are some great modern women warrior examples:
Brené Brown, Michelle Obama, Oprah, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, etc

SHIELD MAIDEN HITS THE STAGES AGAIN POST PANDEMIC!

It’s been a very long 800 years since stages went dark due to the pandemic. The Shield Maiden Team is more than ready to leap back into action! We are deeply grateful to all the words of support and encouragement received. It’s been heartening and humbling to hear how much the show meant to those of you who’ve seen it.

AND it’s been uplifting to hear from those of you who have heard rumblings of the show and want to see it! Thank you for your interest and support during these weird times.
