Thinking Cap Theatre is committed to serving as an educational resource for professional and non-professional artists and youth; to developing community-based arts projects that reflect the diversity of South Florida; and to building relationships with other organizations in the community through creative partnerships.
Thinking Cap Theatre has partnered with hospices to incorporate drama and performance into their bereavement and community outreach services. Most recently, TCT partnered with Treasure Coast Hospice to provide drama workshops for youth centered on the theme of treasuring life. In May 2011, following a three month drama workshop series, our Artistic Director, Nicole Stodard, wrote and directed an original play entitled CHOICE OF LIFE. This 19-character play, based loosely on the short story Rasselas by the English author, Samuel Johnson, addresses issues related to youth, gang violence, and shooting deaths. Thinking Cap also programs readings and productions of plays on death & dying for hospice patients and their families, hospice staff, and their broader communities.
