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.

    The Gospel Proclaimed…

    Since early September I have been living in my childhood home in Spring City, PA with my dad, who is in a gentle stage of dementia. I wanted to use this time of imposed sabbatical to work on some personal things, be present in his life and give breaks to my brother and his wife who live next door.  As well, I have been cleaning out rooms and the basement, discovering a few gems but mostly decades of memories and fleetingly meaningful detritus.  This time...

Reimagine new ways of seeing, or allow ourselves to dream of ways of...

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.

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.
