Theatre of the Mind


Please join us for an exciting evening of theater, music, and dance—all with one thing in common: the journey toward psychological healing and growth. Theater of the Mind will engage your senses as you are taken through a carefully-curated show full of creative expression in an intimate theater setting. Including everything from dynamic dance performances to thought-provoking dramatic pieces, you don’t want to miss out. 

Shadows of Darkness

This dance is an exploration into the inner landscape of post-traumatic stress, including the agonizing reality that perpetration and victimization may converge and merge during intense efforts to survive. Terror and tyranny interplay in the shadows of darkness.

Choreographers: Paula Thomson & Maurice Godin

Music: Henryck Gorecki, Third Movement from the Third Symphony 


A filmed ten-minute play following one man working to try and prevent suicide attempts on the Golden Gate Bridge. When meeting a young woman, he is confronted with his own issues from the past.

Created by: Leanne Domash

Top of the Hour

A live play: It's a very bad night for two strangers waiting for news from a commuter train crash. His wife is on the train. She's a journalist who has to report something at the top of the hour.

Created by: Kitty Felde

Late Night Musing of a Black Mother: Black Lives Do Matter!

A short piece about the history of police brutality toward the African American community.

Created and Performed by: Shawn LaRe Brinkley


A short video about the objectification of women; "She was treated as a trophy, an object, which slowly led to her losing sight of her confidence, her tone of voice, her identity, and eventually her mind."

Created by: Trew Mullen

The Windmills of Your Mind: A Brief Musicopoetic Journey

Created and Performed by: Victoria Stevens


An actor for the first 30 years of her professional career will perform a 10-minute excerpt from an original/adapted work created specifically for Theater of the Mind.

Created and Performed by: Kirsten Frantzich

It Could Be Frankie

A dance inspired by the incredible love, loneliness, and vacillating hope and despair of colleagues, students, and patients who parent, assist, or live with autistic family members. The complex layers of self-regulation by both a caregiver and an individual with autism are often manifested in an array of non-verbal gestures. When these inner worlds of experience collide they reveal the dreams and fears silently carried in the background of their interactions.

Choreographer: Paula Thomson

Music: Philip Glass, Knee Play 5 from Einstein on the Beach

Making Safe Places with Humor And Music

Writing educational and therapeutic songs and using them to help kids, teens, parents and human service professionals, requires a sense of humor, and the ability to see the dear, bittersweet, stumbling human dance we all do together here on our planet.

Created by: Peter Alsop

Performed by: ChinHead the Leprechaun
