Theo is now accepting submissions for our summer 2023 production of Passing Strange.

From singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew comes PASSING STRANGE, a daring musical that takes you on a journey across boundaries of place, identity and theatrical convention. Stew brings us the story of a young bohemian who charts a course for “the real” through sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Loaded with soulful lyrics and overflowing with passion, the show takes us from black middle-class America to Amsterdam, Berlin and beyond on a journey towards personal and artistic authenticity.

Directed by Tim Rhoze
Music Directed by Dr. Michael McBride
Choreographed by Terri K Woodall
