About Single Carrot Theatre


Mission

Single Carrot Theatre ensemble is a driving force for theatrical innovation in Baltimore— championing new, diverse, and socially significant works; reinvigorating the classics; creating vibrant theatrical experiences; and fiercely supporting the growth of young artists.

Brief History
In 2006, a small ensemble from the University of Colorado conducted a nationwide search and decided to lay down roots and build a theatre in “The Greatest City in America!” Now, entering its tenth full season, Single Carrot Theatre has produced 43 mainstage productions; participated in numerous collaborative endeavors with area nonprofits; offered extensive educational programming for both children and adults; and engaged in international exchanges with theatre artists from Russia, Bulgaria, and Hungary. Single Carrot Theatre moved to a permanent home in Remington in January 2014. Firmly planted in Baltimore, Single Carrot Theatre has made it a priority to be a part of the community and to engage and empower Baltimore’s residents through theatre. 

Structure
Single Carrot Theatre is an ensemble based theatre company where the artists of the organization also function as the administrative staff. Each ensemble member has voting rights and is actively involved in any big picture decisions and creation of new policy.

Artistic Programming Overview

 

Single Carrot Theatre (SCT) is a producing hub for new works by unique artists for a diverse audience. Over the past decade SCT has grown from a small, grassroots theater company into a cultural institution. SCT produces over 100 evenings of performances each year.

In addition to its bold artistic ventures, SCT is committed to expanding access to cultural and artistic experiences, which is why the theatre regularly opens its doors with free and low-cost community workshops and holds pay-what-you-can performances for each of its mainstage productions.

Mainstage Season

Single Carrot’s mainstage season consists for four to five plays chosen by the ensemble for production.  The selection process involves a rigorous examination of potential scripts, which are evaluated on the basis of many criteria, including alignment with mission statement, commitment to new work and emerging playwrights, and relevancy to the Baltimore City community as a whole.  These plays represent the artistic heart of SCT and the combined intellectual and creative talents of the ensemble that makes up its core. 

Flip-Side Series

Single Carrot’s Flip-Side Series was designed to explore unconventional art forms, expanding our definition of what is “theatre.”  A complement to our Mainstage, this series looks towards theatrical innovation that excites and inspires our audience and artists. Flip-Side productions may be created by the ensemble or other artists Single Carrot Theatre is excited to present. Immersive, interactive, site specific, and full of laughter, song, movement, and mania, the Single Carrot Flip Side is designed to take what you think you know about performance and flip it on its head.

Educational  Programming Overview

 

Single Carrot Theatre’s work onstage and in the community grows from the convictions that participatory cultural experiences facilitate learning and artistic expression is civic engagement.

Single Carrot fiercely supports the growth of artists, through programming such as Student Matinee Performances, workshops for kids and adults, partnerships with local organizations and public schools, and events surrounding productions to engage in a deeper dialogue around the art.

Youth in Single Carrot's education programs are given tools for self-expression, often through the creation of self-generated work. By instilling confidence, leadership, teamwork and creativity, these programs prepare students to become change makers and leaders within their own communities.
