About Three Bone Theatre
Three Bone Theatre is Charlotte's home for the best of adult contemporary theatre. We believe that great theatre can be a catalyst for conversation and change in our community. Our business philosophy stems from the Reba McEntire quote, “To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a back bone, and a funny bone.”
To create a performing arts experience that is socially engaged, professionally managed, and creatively inspired.
As a local arts organization, Three Bone Theatre feels strongly about supporting other local groups. We partner with a different local organization for each production with the hope of raising awareness to the unique themes present in each production and the commendable work that is being done in the Charlotte community.
Three Bone Theatre is committed to modeling diversity, equity and inclusion for the entire arts industry of the nonprofit sector, and to maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all. The following policies were adopted by our Board of Directors in September 2018. Every artist, volunteer, staff member and board member is required to accept and adhere to these policies.

Tiffany Bryant-Jackson is the founding Artistic Director of Open Cage Productions. Her study of theatre began at Elon University and has traveled with her as far north as Alaska. As a Charlotte transplant, she has been blessed to work with various organizations as an actor, arts advocate, and teaching artist. After years of making Charlotte home and truly falling in love with the city, her focus shifted to community engagement. She worked on a preschool tour that traveled to a school where she witnessed firsthand the general lack of access to the arts and how life changing a show could be, she had a revelation. This experience became the catalyst to found Open Cage Productions, a theatre company that focused on providing culturally diverse theatrical and educational experiences to all. She is currently serving as the Co-Chair to Diversity On and Off Stage.
