MISSION:

TCT is devoted to presenting experimental, provocative, and socially-conscious plays.  TCT is also committed to presenting works that depict a range of identities more reflective of today’s society; to dismantling norms and stereotypes through non-reactionary, honest means; and to freshly presenting both well-known and rarely-staged classical plays.

  • Promoting and presenting experimental, thought-provoking theatre.

Community Outreach

Thinking Cap Theatre is committed to building and facilitating relationships with the South Florida community through creative partnerships.

Thinking Cap Theatre has partnered with hospices and helped incorporate drama and performance into their bereavement and community outreach services. Thinking Cap also programs readings and productions of plays on death & dying for hospice patients and their families, hospice staff, and their broader communities.

Most recently, TCT partnered with Treasure Coast Hospice to provide drama workshops for youth centered on the theme of treasuring life. In May 2011, following a three-month drama workshop series, our Artistic Director, Nicole Stodard, wrote and directed an original play entitled CHOICE OF LIFE. This 19-character play, based loosely on the short story Rasselas by the English author, Samuel Johnson, addresses issues related to youth, gang violence, and shooting deaths.

TCT Reviews

I am a regular theatre-goer, and every Thinking Cap production I’ve seen has been wonderful—funny and sad at turns, and deeply thought-provoking. TCT has my highest recommendation.
