  • The Shelter is to be applauded for the work it’s doing — developing new theatre and building creative relationships at a time when small theatre companies are dropping like flies. Its approach to making theatre is both practical and optimistic.

Make A Playdate!

Each month, The Shelter invites you to make a date with a new play. Here’s how it works: Our staff specially selects a fresh off the vine play that we’re really excited about. We pair the play with an insanely gifted director and cast. They rehearse. Then we present the play to you as a FREE reading. Pay nothing. Just show up and enjoy. All the fun and theatre you could ever want—with none of the commitment.
