About

ThreePenny Theatre Company is guided by a two-fold mission: internally we strive to engage impoverished, lower income, and homeless communities in classes and rehearsal in the theatrical arts. This includes: writing, acting, directing, and carpentry, training proven to develop written and vocal communication, teamwork, and practical construction skills. Externally, ThreePenny Theatre Company produces works designed to educate and engage the larger community in the ideas, perspectives, and shortcomings that shape our society.
