COVID-19 update

Like so many artists and small business owners, Ted & Co has been impacted by the social-distancing required to ‘flatten the curve.’ We’re doing our part flattening things, flat out cancelled our spring tours. While we are rebooking for summer and fall, the unknowing of when we might be able to get back out on the road is daunting. We’d of course like our flattening things to not squish us.

If you value the work we do, and have the means to do so, we would be so grateful for your financial support. Your donation would be tax deductible through the Center for Art, Humor & Soul. Just follow this link and choose “other” and check “write us a comment” and write in “For Ted & Co.”

With gratitude and prayers for safe-keeping. Stay well friends! May you find opportunity to laugh, and find the light inside the darkness in this life-altering time.

    Anatomy of a Work of Art in Progress Part III: The Crew

    When we last left off, I was being convicted to not only take the script to a deeper, more vulnerable space but my acting as well, aaack! We now found ourselves in that beautiful theater space in tech rehearsals. Now, when we rented the Goshen Theater, Jerry Peters came with it. It’s right there in the contract: “In signing this contract, as a bonus, you also receive a healthy dose of Jerry Peters.” Everyone needs a healthy dose of Jerry Peters. I first met Jerry...

    Anatomy of a Work of Art in Progress Part II: The Questions Directors Ask

    When we last were with you, Steven and Ted had found the Really Cool Theater.  So, a change in plans–don’t shoot the video in the barn, amongst the detritus and memories of my childhood, but rather travel to Goshen, Indiana, and rent the gorgeous, recently renovated Goshen Theater where they have been unable to host events because… all together now:  “The pandemic hit and all performances were canceled.” In light of this change in plans–a real theater instead of a barn–maybe I need to be...

What are people saying about our shows?

About We Own This Now:

I’m so grateful to have attended last night’s performance in Leola, PA. As you may know, there’s a 42″ high-pressure shale gas pipeline being built across Lancaster County. It meant a lot to me that you spoke of our issues in the play. The teaching you’re doing is incredibly important.

-Don P.

 
About Listening for Grace:

During the talk back, two men stood: one the father of young gay man, and the other a young gay man himself. Through tears, each shared that Ted & Co had accurately and movingly told their respective stories. The young man went on to share that seeing the show inspired in him more compassion for his own parents and for his home congregation. I can't imagine a better testimony to the power of this production to not only open space for conversation, but also compassion and transformation.
