Ragtag Theatre Company is a group of diverse artist dedicated to creating fresh and inclusive family theatre. LGBTQIA Friendly

 We do fairytales. But not yo mama's fairytales. We do fractured fairytales that spoof and riff off of pop culture... (much like Animaniacs or Shrek), and we do it all in the style of Commedia dell’Arte, which is an early style of Italian street theatre that incorporates big funny characters, improvisation, and direct audience involvement all in one. Our shows are audience interactive and the kids are integrated into every performance, making them feel uniquely important in this theatrical experience. Ultimately, our goal is the make you laugh and we hope to empower and inspire all youngins and grown folk alike to embrace what makes them different.
