All-Girl Theater Company Cofounder Katie Cappiello on Giving Teen Girls a Voice and a Stage | Music, Theatre, and Dance |

"We feel like theater is a powerful platform for kids to be heard," said Katie Cappiello, cofounder of theAll-Girl Theater Company , along with Meg McInerney, a fellow NYU Tisch graduate. With that intention, Cappiello and McInerney founded the All-Girl Theater Company in 2007 after deciding to pursue their common passion for teaching. The company offers girls aged 9 to 18 in the New York tristate area with intensive training in method-based acting technique as well as with opportunities to collaborate on original material.
