After-School Special Theatre is a fresh faced theatre company presenting handcrafted productions from our campy improvised "Grandma Shows" to our own hot-off the press plays. No matter what we're producing all of our work strives to be original, transgressive, participatory and fun. We're a collective dedicated to creating theatre that follows the "Do It Yourself" motto, by a large majority we write, act, market, produce and direct all of our own work, which often finds its homes performed in public spaces. We want to view theatre through the eyes of the audience, and try hard to only produce work that will entertain and excite the viewer. As a team, we value theatre that is accessible, extravagant, and experimental. After-School Special Theatre was founded by Tori Lassman, Anna O'Connell, Chloe Hayat, and Gabriella Sprenkle out of a desire to continue producing and sharing our own exciting works of theatre and media.
