Theatre Espresso books programs from October through June, and occasionally performs at fundraisers or special events on evenings or weekends. Our actors are available to teach in after-school programs. We present our programs in a wide variety of venues, including school auditoriums, gymnasiums, libraries, courtrooms, conference rooms, and proscenium theatres! We also offer two free programs for Boston Public Schools (see below). We can perform in most settings as long as there is sufficient room for our equipment, a large enough 'stage' area and, of course, room for the desired audience.
Through its new Road to Tolerance program, Theatre Espresso is making it possible for Boston Public School students to attend performances of any one of four dramas--American Tapestry, The Nine Who Dared, The Trial of Anthony Burns and Justice at War--at the John Adams Courthouse in Boston, in partnership with the Supreme Judicial Court and the Supreme Judicial Court Historical Society. Fall of 2012 marks the 5th year that Nine Who Dared can be seen at the John Adams Courthouse. The Road to Tolerance performances are grant-funded and free for Boston Public Schools. Schools can arrange for transportation to the John Adams Courthouse through Mass Cultural Council's "Big Yellow School Bus" program. Please contact Shelley Bolman Woodberry, Managing Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-413-1771 to learn more about this program or to book one of the three plays at the John Adams Courthouse during the 2011-12 school year.

We need at least 30 days lead time to schedule a program. Look over the Theatre Espresso performance fees and lengths, audience size limits, and discount possibilities listed below. Because Theatre Espresso charges $5.00 per student over the stated audience limits, we request that sponsors notify us when student numbers will exceed our audience limits so that the contract reflects the extra students.
