For over two decades, Mixed Company Theatre has helped organizations develop and present original Forum Theatre plays to address issues and concerns within their communities.
Forum Theatre is an UNESCO-recognized educational tool that involves the audience in developing real-time strategies to those issues. It celebrates community stories and voices, catalyzes people to ask questions about oppression and inequity, and build agency to develop grassroots solutions to community challenges. For more information on our unique approach, see our Forum Theatre page.
We have a few different program formats available, which can be customized to address the most pressing concerns facing your community today. Read on for further details about the topics we can address and the structure of our programs.
We offer three types of virtual programming options, as well as a staff training option for community organizations to choose from, based on your goals and budget. Your community is fully involved in the creation process from beginning to end, possibly assisting with or acting in the final Forum Theatre presentation of the theme/topic that they wish to explore and analyze.
In light of the shutdowns and physical distancing measures in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted our Forum Theatre techniques to a virtual platform!
We can offer our community programming through Zoom. For those unfamiliar with Zoom, we start all presentations with an overview of the functions and ways to interact for full participation.
