The Rogue Ensemble Theater Company (Joey Nasta & Julie Spina, co-producers) was founded in Summer 2020 by Christine Reisig and Julie Spina with the aim to produce masked, socially-distant theatre that could be performed safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rogue Ensemble has since rededicated itself to forming a decentralized cohort of early-career artists passionate about creating exceptional and accessible reimagined classics and bringing to life new, original work. Their inaugural production of AS YOU LIKE IT toured NYC parks last summer, followed by TITUS ANDRONICUS performed at Grant’s Tomb in October. The Rogue Ensemble Theater Company is made possible by your donations. To support their theater-making, contributions can be made to their current season’s GoFundMe.
