Do we want to pose a question? Introduce a moral dilemma? Tell a story? We can do all that and much more through theatre. Theatre may be the most powerful way to communicate the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ. We can do theatre performances anywhere, anytime – we only need a bit of space and a prop or two.
In TACO, we use theatre, with no words or many, to draw a crowd, share the gospel message or simply open the door to spiritual conversations. While we have not done a lot of events that are solely theatre or full length dramas, we have found that performances which combine theatre with music and other arts can be very effective. The words may be limited, but the body language is universal.
So if you are an actor or actress, like writing dramas, love directing plays, have a passion for sharing the Good News through acting, then come join us! We are looking for people with gifts in these areas to come join us on tours in various countries or street outreaches. Come work alongside local actors and people from around the world. Want to bring your whole theatre company overseas? Great! We would love to work with you to see how we could use your whole team in an effective way.
We look forward to having you with us soon! All you have to do is click contact so that we can start chatting about a good fit for you. You can use the same form to send along to us any questions you have. We'll get back to you as soon as we can. Don't sign any Hollywood contracts before then.
"During one of our tours, we were doing street performances. We usually started with music, dances and other things to attract a crowd, and ended with a final drama. Then we invited people to stay behind to talk to us. The drama we used illustrated God’s creation and the salvation brought by Jesus. After the show I could easily start conversations with 'Did you like our last drama?; or 'Do you know what our last drama meant?' And then was able to share the whole gospel message.
We never know what part of a performance encourages people to open their hearts for the Holy Spirit to work: was it the music, the dance, the drama, the personal testimony after the shows …? But during that tour, two people came to the Lord. It was a delight to work with a team of people, to share about our Lord Jesus Christ, and to see lives changed when God touches their hearts."
