Artistic Director Tom Key says of this new student offering: "There is nothing better than when young people come through the doors of Theatrical Outfit for the first time and are blown away by the delight, the power, and the passion of live theatre, or when they lift one of our classroom workshops with their new and abandoned energy, or when they take the audience response to an even higher level of engagement. So, I am thrilled to make affordable tickets available to the youth of our Atlanta metro area right here in the center of our community in the radical and robust diversity that is the heart of downtown. Whether they come as a group from out of state, notice us and take a chance on a show because they saw our award-winning building while waiting in line at the Tabernacle one block away, or if they walk by our doors next to The Rialto every day as Georgia State students, our hope is to make the experience they have at Theatrical Outfit one that will inspire a lifetime of love for the transformative gifts of performing art."

ABOUT OUR VENUE: Theatrical Outfit utilizes a Loop Listening System, making The Balzer Theater at Herren’s the first theater in the state of Georgia to incorporate this technology. Attendees with T-coil hearing aids may participate automatically, and others needing enhancement may obtain system-compatible headsets from our lobby Box Office.
ABOUT THEATRICAL OUTFIT: Atlanta’s second-oldest continuously-operating professional theatre company was founded in 1976 and has been led by Artistic Director Tom Key since fall 1995. Key led the company through the creation of its award-winning downtown home, the Balzer Theater at Herren’s, the first U.S. theater to achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Balzer Theater is also the historical site of Herren’s, the first restaurant in Atlanta to voluntarily desegregate in 1962; its first African American patrons, Dr. Lee and Delores Shelton, remain Theatrical Outfit patrons. Key's programming of classics, regional and world premieres, and musicals tell soul-stirring stories, with themes that explore diversity, equality, ethnicity, race, and religion; and often feature the best writers of the American South, including Ernest Gaines, Lauren Gunderson, Horton Foote, Harper Lee, Flannery O’Connor, Janece Shaffer, Sherry Shephard-Massat, Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder, and Tennessee Williams. After ten years of capital investment, T.O. is in new territory. Having retired its mortgage, the staff, trustees, and artists have launched a new 2018-2020 Strategic Plan designed to produce great art, diversify and grow our audience, increase revenue and reserves, develop artists who contribute to the dramatic canon, and maintain an effective organization. In September of 2018, Theatrical Outfit welcomed Gretchen E. Butler as Managing Director.
OUR VISION: A compassionate, joyful, and just community.
OUR MISSION: Produce world-class theatre that starts the conversations that matter.
