Bearded Mission: The Bearded Ladies Cabaret is a queer arts organization that sits on your lap and sings you a story. Whether it’s an opera, a home-made cabaret, a musical walking tour, or a show on a truck, we employ song, spectacle, storytelling, and heart to welcome audiences into moments of joy, healing, and subversion. Through sharing our original pieces and creating bespoke platforms for performance at home in Philadelphia, nationally, and abroad, we nurture artistic connection for a community of misfits, rabble-rousers, chanteuses and the people who love and need them.

Bearded Values: One central value to all our artistic and administrative practice is heart. By practicing with “heart” we mean practicing with humanity, care, vulnerability, and clear communication. As we live in both the process of artmaking and the systems that support that work, we aim to work with equity, prioritizing people (artists, technicians, and administrators) over products. We see our work as rooted in queer liberation, which does not exist without the liberation of all oppressed groups. Prioritizing liberation and heart in art making means creating a healthy space with systems of support for artists, administrators, and technicians. For a more detailed look at our values and mission: see HERE.

Where you will work: The Bearded Ladies have an office and rehearsal space in West Philadelphia. We call it The Beardcave. As of April 2023, The Bearded Ladies are currently operating in a primarily remote work environment, with some in-person meetings, and onsite time for performances.
