The Anonymous Theatre Company has produced a truly electric night of theatre in cities all over the world. Based in Portland, Oregon, ATC has been producing heart-stopping theatrical events since 2002.
Auditions are held... in secret. The play is cast... in secret. Cast members rehearse the show one-on-one with the director... secretly... and do not learn the identity of the other cast members. On the night of the performance, the actors arrive in street clothes and enter the theatre as if they are members of the audience. They take their seats. They read their programs. They chat with their neighbors. The house lights dim and the play begins... with each actor delivering his or her first line from their seat. The audience gets to see the story happen as if it is happening for the first time... because it actually is happening for the first time.
We aim to build community by creating a truly electric one-night-only event.
