Returning for the second year in a row, Mildred’s Umbrella (MU) is teaming up with Rudyard’s British Pub and Houstonia Magazine for ‘Women Rock,’ a fundraiser benefiting the theater company’s 2019-20 season.

Associate Artistic Director and Concert Coordinator Miranda Morris added, “This fundraiser is vital for Mildred’s Umbrella. It’s our largest fundraiser of the year and will kick start our 2019/2020 season. Partnering with these great female artists to present ‘Women Rock’ again this year, is an honor and we are so grateful for their support. We’re taking over both floors at Rudyard’s for the 2019 concert; it’s going to be huge!”

Signed on for the 2019 concert are: Miears, Pretty Vacant, Quinn the Brain, Marina Rocks, Annika Chambers Band, Sweet Mama Cotton, Benita, Lazer Kittenz, Alli Villines, and more.

The funds raised from the evening will support MU’s theatrical productions and reading series, which promote both emerging and recognized women playwrights and directors, and its outreach program, Partners for A.R.T., which puts theater to work for local women service organizations.
