A Bit About Us
We are Theater with a Mission, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation made up of actors, scholars, and cultural explorers based in Tallahassee, Florida. Our collective origins are Hispanic, Caucasian, African American and Native American. Our youngest actor is 6 years old, and our oldest…Well, let’s just say our actors represent many different stages of life!
We’re united by one quest: to rediscover history by reviving plays from el Siglo de Oro, the Spanish Golden Age.
Theater with a Mission (TWAM) creates and performs plays that explore milestones in Florida’s history. Presented in English spiced with historic Spanish, in period costume with authentic songs and dances, our original scripts and new translations carry audiences across barriers of language, time, and space, into face-to-face encounters with Florida’s Spanish roots and history’s great ideas.
