WHO WE ARE

Shedding a bit of light on

Hit the Lights! Theater Co:

Hit the Lights! Theater Co. is an award winning company created out of an artistic agreement to tell simple stories well, through unconventional ways. Using found materials, flashlights, and cardboard, HTL! specializes in the transformation of the ordinary into the extraordinary. HTL! also focuses on the interplay between darkness and light, utilizing shadow puppetry as the lifeblood of their storytelling. The company is comprised of six experienced multidisciplinary artists: puppeteers, actors, musicians, artisans, and everything in between.  

 

Original works include DUNGEON (Audience Pick of the Fringe at the Cincinnati Fringe and Editors Pick at the Minnesota Fringe), WHALES (nominated for three Innovative Theater Awards including Outstanding Innovative Design, Outstanding Original Music and Outstanding Premiere Production of a Play), THE OTHER RHINE, a world premiere immersive theater experience (Know Theatre of Cincinnati), and ISLA, the newest show that recently had its first workshop at Dixon Place. HTL!’s Off-Broadway credits include their original performance of HORSETALE at Ars Nova’s 2017 ANT Fest, La MaMa ETC Puppet Slam and most recently DUNGEON at Ars Nova One Night Stand.
