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.
