About Us

Theatre for Transformation is a non-profit interdisciplinary art organization that heals the world through performances, workshops and showcases that re-shape how we understand our history and our local communities. Our aim is to create and tour interdisciplinary performances with music and drama about African American history for diverse audiences. A touring company, TFT has traveled to over 100 schools, faith communities, community centers, and universities since our founding in 2007. The company has performed its original works at Stanford University, Haverford College, Franklin & Marshall College, Neumann University, Northeastern Illinois University, and many others.

TFT’s plays have been awarded by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and other organizations.

We are located in downtown Lancaster, PA:
