FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Are your productions really completely in English?
Yes! From start to finish, and even our interactive sessions— COMPLETELY IN ENGLISH.
2. Are you a community or amateur theater?
We are a professional theater, created and driven by English-speaking trained and experienced actors and theater professionals who get paid for their work.
3. Where do you perform?
We are mainly a traveling theater, with mobile sets. We usually perform at the location that orders our productions, although we do occasionally perform at public venues. Contact us to get on our mailing list where you’ll be notified on all upcoming public performances and other updates. or subscribe to our free Newsletter.
4. Where can I see your plays and shows?
Most of our productions are privately booked (schools, private venues, special events, etc.) so we naturally do not publicize these dates. We do occasionally have performances at theaters that are open to the public, and everyone is welcome to buy tickets and enjoy the show. We post our upcoming performances towards show dates, either in our NEWS page, newsletters, or on Facebook.
Contact us if you’d like to order our plays.
5. Are your plays intended only for English-speakers?
No. We create our plays for everybody. We don’t expect EVERY non-English-speaking person in our audience to understand every word in our production, but rather understand the play as a whole. We make sure that our plays contain different “levels” of comprehension, so that EVERY person in our audience— English-speaking or not, young or old— is entertained within an authentic English-language experience.
6. How do I order your productions or workshops?
Simply choose a play/show/workshop, choose a date or two to check our availability, and complete the booking process. You can contact us and we’ll take it from there.
8. I’m an actor, are you auditioning?
We usually post audition notices on Facebook. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can contact us, we’d love to get to know more English-speaking professional actors and actresses!
9. My school really wants to order your play, but our school’s budgets are very limited. What can we do?
Unfortunately, no matter how hard and often we tried, we are not subsidized by any organization (we’re so unique that we can’t fit under any particular “specification”). Fortunately, we’ve learned of some good ideas from schools who were in this situation and got creative: Create a theatrical “event” by inviting parents and selling tickets at modest prices, request assistance from your local municipality, request financial consideration from the parent board, make a “bulk order” with other schools in the area (every school still gets its own show, contact us for details), or contact your English Inspector to bring attention to the importance of having this performance at your school.
10. I teach at a religious school. Are your productions suitable?
We understand there are different “degrees” of religious schools and what they deem appropriate or inappropriate. Please contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
11. Do you have anything that you can create especially for my event?
Yes. We have shows that can be tailored to your specific event (for adults or children or both), as well as Drama Workshops that can be tailored to certain themes. Contact us for more details.
12. How can I be sure students at my school will understand your plays?
We create our productions with the EFL/ESL audience in mind (see #5). Once our shows are created, we perform several pilot shows to “test-run” the performance in front of the target audience before its official “release”. Also, we provide a Teacher’s Enrichment Booklet with every play (and some workshops) that are sent to the school/teacher prior to the performance. This booklet has photocopy-ready activities and activity suggestions related to the play’s content and vocabulary, including vocabulary lists, activity sheets, and extensive project guides. Over the years, we’ve had performances in front of audiences who were not prepared beforehand and still understood and enjoyed their English-language experience.
