Become an Ambassador

Theater really is richer when EVERYONE is in the audience! That’s why we are committed to making audiences for our paid locations as diverse as those in non-traditional locations. A terrific group of TTT artists of color—Shá Cage, T. Mychael Rambo, Randy Reyes, Ricard Vazquez and Regina Williams—is guiding our Ambassadors Program. Learn more about how to become an Ambassador.

Have an Idea for a Site for a Free Show?

Ten Thousand Things performs in a variety of non-traditional settings, including correctional facilities, low-income centers and schools. If you are interesting in hosting a TTT performance in a particular setting, contact Nancy Waldoch.


Volunteers check in attendees, gather audience comments, handle box office and collect surveys at our free and paid performances. Contact Amy Tang to learn more.

Bring Our Model to Your Theater

Numerous companies have looked to Ten Thousand Things to learn about our unique production model that serves non-traditional audiences. The Public in New York was the first to engage Artistic Director Michelle Hensley in producing a Shakespeare tour for its Mobile Shakespeare unit. Since then, California Shakespeare and the Old Globe in San Diego also have adopted TTT's model. Learn more.


“Ten Thousand Things is about what matters most: kindness to others, particularly the marginalized, and inspiring art.” — Donor
