Special Projects

Sometimes our community members come up with a great idea that just doesn't fit anywhere else. A cooperative performance at a brewery with another theatre troupe? Sure! An endurance theater festival to benefit charity? Can do! Classes on improv comedy? You betcha! Special Projects is our catch-all for these amazing ideas, and more that we haven't yet thought of. Sometimes these ideas grow up and become full programs – see our pages for Bare Bones and FirstWorks elsewhere on this site!
