ShoWorks Entertainment produces classic, new and original theatre and film projects. Internationally recognized and nominated in various festivals, ShoWorks continues to strive to bring innovative, exciting, relevant and thought provoking pieces to life.
As collaborative creatives, we support fellow artists who "Don't Wait. Create" and take the leap of faith, by developing and cultivating their own work. Through our "one-stop bespoke production shop," ShoWorks helps bring your passion projects from page to stage.
In addition, we are the proud sponsor of the "Don't Wait. Create! Award" at the annual Hollywood Fringe Festival, for original and innovative production.
At ShoWorks we believe in imagination and creation, as well as remembering that we get to dress up and play for the rest of our lives!
