The Next Generation
of Theatre Artists

Dodgeball Theatre produces new plays and original devised work. Dodgeball is dedicated to empowering young artists and developing their theatrical voices through all-ages classes, independent productions, and its youth company, the Teen Ensemble. 

Dodgeball makes theatre focused on questions of identity, narrative, and storytelling. Its training method combines movement, improvisation, and nonfiction writing to develop mutimedia performances.
