The Theatre Ensemble of Nashville is a small company with big dreams. Here are a few truths that we feel must be maintained in the production of theatre:
1 Theatre should not cost more than attending a movie. A trip to the movies for two can run upwards of thirty dollars. At TEN, a ticket for a live experience will never "break the bank."
2 Theatre should be a visceral experience. People can do plenty of things to relax, but at the theatre, they should feel something.
3 Theatre should not be an "every so often" sort of thing. Theatre occurs in our daily lives, and TEN works to give people as many opportunities to see stories presented live as possible.
4 Story is king in the theatre. We must do our best to never let technology or a "concept" for a show get in the way of the story that we are trying to tell. Everything we do must support the work the playwright has done before us.
