The Philadelphia Theatre Resource Sharing Committee is a volunteer group of theater professionals from across the Philadelphia region who have come together to envision and organize resource-sharing initiatives for performing arts institutions and individual artists in the Philadelphia area. We aim to reduce waste, increase cross-company conversation, and create more avenues for sharing the community’s resources. We strive to make the Philadelphia performing arts sector radically innovative, equitable, and sustainable. We are guided by the value of generosity.

You can use the link above and the following login information to access the inventory:
