Join us to honor Shimite Obialo

Shimite is a New York-based corporate attorney at Lowenstein Sandler, entrepreneur, musician and art collector. She is passionate about community empowerment, cultural heritage and supporting the arts. Shimite has generously donated many hours of pro-bono legal advisory for The Barrow Group (TBG), including incorporation and by-law work to ensure compliance with state law. As a member of the TBG Board of Trustees from 2014-2016, she spearheaded TBG’s Diversity Committee, which created strategies to diversify TBG’s constituents and students. As a result, with the help of the Citrin Foundation, TBG created its first scholarship program for students ages 7-17 from low income families. Additonally, Shimite helped TBG develop its Corporate Workshop programming. Shimite holds degrees from Duke University and Columbia Law School.

 

Help Bring Our Next Season to Life! Every donor helps “produce” the next season! By attending our Spring party– you become part the the “producing force” that drives TBG. Ticket sales cover only half of our production costs — sets, lights, designers, carpenters, technicians, stage managers, costumes, directors, actors — it’s a lot! We need your support to continue bringing you intimate, superbly acted shows in our theatre next season.

In addition, this year any amount raised over our $21K goal will go to our school’s new DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS! We are committed to raising funds to diversify our student body. So we are ear-marking any funds raised over $21K (our production budget) as scholarship funding for diversity applicants in our acting and playwrighting programs.
