Company One Theatre is Boston’s hub for community connection.

Connectivity is our way of bringing you in contact with our mission and with those who are also working to create a just and equitable Boston.

Dig deeper into our shows and events by engaging with our partners and taking action with us!

C1 connects with partners across the city to explore themes and content found in our productions. Partnerships can take many forms, from working with our artistic teams, to sharing resources in our lobby, to collaborating on public events like Branch Out with C1, post-show events, film screenings, and more!

Do you have a partnership idea, audience engagement event, or social action you’d like to see at C1 this season? Let’s make it happen! Email

Joy in Motion: A Queer Dance Class & Clothing Pass

You better work (out)! Celebrate the power of movement, community, and self expression for mental health at a free dance class and clothing pass — come ready to groove at an upbeat dance session for all levels that’s guaranteed to make you smile, and bring along any gently-used activewear to swap with other community members to update your wardrobe with gender-affirming workout gear! Plus, enjoy free snacks and find opportunities to connect with local wellness resources, sports teams, groups classes, and other physical activities by and for queer folks of all sizes and abilities. LGBTQ+ folks of all backgrounds are welcome to join the fun!
