    How are we a Company?
    As credited to theatre troupes in the 16th and 17th centuries in England, we call ourselves a Company. (Although, we do not have a patron!)
    The young actors audition to become a member of the Company and the productions are chosen once the Company is in place. The initial weeks are spent on getting to know one another and bond as a group, working equally as one, challenging their own comfort zones. The strength of the Company then helps to dictate the production.
