We are a Startup Theatre Company rooted in the Elizabethan Tradition: we build accessible theatrical experiences to provoke, inspire, & entertain and train Actor-Creators to tell their stories more clearly, bravely, & impulsively. Our actors are veterans of Shakespeare’s Globe (London), The Old Globe (San Diego), Classic Stage Company (NYC), and New york Classical Theatre (NYC).Since January 2017, we have:
  • produced 5 full productions, from secret immersive experiences to free outdoor summer productions to devised work.
  • run a variety of donation-based or low-cost training for actors in Shakespeare, ensemble movement, clown, and puppetry.
  • Presented readings of rarely heard plays like "The Tragedy of Miriam" by Elizabeth Cary (1613) and "The Roaring Girl" by Thomas Dekker and Thomas Middleton (1611).

By bringing professional theatre out into public spaces and non-traditional venues throughout Queens, our work fosters community: enriching neighborhoods through cultural engagement without barriers of location and ticket price. Live music attracts audience members from pre-show through curtain call; we speak directly with the audience, making every performance a unique experience where the audience is as important to the story as any actor; our productions embrace each new space as a member of the ensemble, inviting audiences to reimagine familiar spaces and discover favorite new ones.

Your support will allow us to expand this community building both through our in person productions and beginning to create digital content to invite people from all over the world into these experiences and provide them with tools and techniques to create similar experiences of their own.
