Our Mission

MISCHIEF · ADVENTURE · HEART

 

 
 

Tut’Zanni Theatre Company exists to create fun, interactive experiences that invite audiences to stand with us on the precipice of "what happens next?". 

As storytellers, we expand the views of not only what theatre can be, but what people can be. We bring people together to take them on an adventure that allows all of us to open our eyes, see our mistakes, comfort the heartbreak, celebrate the ridiculous, and remind ourselves that beauty and play exist everywhere. We believe that theatre is nothing if not entertaining, but the best theatre should also challenge our perspectives on the world and stir up the sediment so that we live truer, more just, more equal, more generous and more thoughtful lives.

Our Story

When a man loves a woman, and another man, and three other women…

We met in 2006 while attending the Accademia dell’Arte in Arezzo, Italy. It was a special semester, to say the least. We won’t soon forget it. When the program ended, we scattered to the wind to continue our lives, thinking often of our incredible time together in the Tuscan hills.

In 2011, ALi and Dory called up Liam, Patrick, Allegra and Molly to realize a crazy dream: to come together again and devise an original work, called Art for Sale, as a new theatre company. With that, Tut’Zanni was born.

We come from all over. Outside Tut’Zanni we work as actors, directors, teachers, musicians, accountants, bartenders, dishwashers, administrators, and more, across the United States and Europe. As far away as we usually are from each other, we're hopelessly devoted to chasing the thrill of those magical moments that emerge when we're in the same room.

Our Shows

We use masks, archetypal characters, physical comedy and improv to create a rough-and-tumble, “people’s theatre” style that is fun, relatable, and engaging. 

Our shows are all about the characters: the overworked and undervalued employee, their boss the tightwad business owner, the braggy social climber, and the power-hungry politician (sound familiar?). The characters in our shows invite the audience to join in the fun: to shout, suggest, support and heckle them along the way. Together, we are able to talk about our world and our struggles, and most importantly laugh.

Training & Workshops

 


Though the theatre we create can seem like pandemonium, the form we employ actually requires a great deal of precision, so training is essential. Over the years, we have developed a series of exercises that now allow us to share our love of masked physical performance with students of all ages and levels. Check out the options available.
