Actors Bridge Ensemble
We are a training program for new and seasoned actors.
We are a theatre company dedicated to telling the stories that need to be told in Nashville.
We are committed to taking big risks for the reward of authenticity on stage and in life.
We are in love with broadening what is considered theater in our community.
We are people who help others find their voice and speak their truths.
We believe in theater’s power to heal us in a thousand places we may not have realized needed healing.
We believe that the theater is a sacred calling: we make a promise to our community to stay emotionally connected in a world that praises going numb. We promise to feel and remind our audiences how good feeling can be.
We believe in the ensemble principle. The person you see on stage in one show you will likely see behind the light board in the next. The person selling tickets may also be a budding new playwright. Your usher is likely an aspiring actor.
Our mission is tell the stories that matter to Nashville as we train theater artists, produce socially conscious plays, create new work, expand what counts as theater in our community, and help artists and audiences find their authentic voice and speak easy on stage and in life.
