About Amphibian Stage: Amphibian Stage Productions is a non-profit theatre company founded in 2000 by three alumni of TCU’s Department of Theatre who strive to produce innovative and engaging theatre that inspires new ideas, opens new doors, and increases our understanding of the vast world around us. Now in its twentieth season, Amphibian has produced numerous groundbreaking and challenging plays (some regional premieres, others US or world premieres) that foster a deeper understanding of ourselves as members of the global community. The company is widely recognized for its stylistically and thematically varied scripts.
Committed to nurturing young and diverse audiences, Amphibian has developed a strong internship program, and a dynamic outreach project, Tad-Poles, that is steadily increasing the company’s visibility and following. In 2018, Amphibian launched a multi-faceted outreach program designed for veterans of the US armed forces. The program includes De-Cruit classes – which use Shakespeare and science to help veterans reacclimate to civilian life after trauma – plus special performances, and discounted tickets. They have expanded their De-Cruit classes to include a weekly class for veterans incarcerated at the Green Bay Jail in north Fort Worth.
