history

Generator Theater Company was founded in 2007 under the name Thunder Mountain Theatre Project by a group of theater artists in Juneau, Alaska.  Our first production, True West by Sam Shepard, was directed by Artistic Director Flordelino Lagundino and featured ensemble members Enrique Bravo and Ryan Conarro as Lee and Austin.  In 2009, we changed the company’s name to Generator Theater Company to better reflect what we do: produce work generated by our artists' impulses to create and engage in dialogue with our communities.  The company has gone on to produce plays such as The Beauty Queen of Leenane, a repertory of Shakespeare’s R&J adapted from Shakespeare’s text by Joe Calarco and Dying City by Christopher Shinn, and the world premiere productions of The Reincarnation of Stories by Native Alaskan playwright Ishmael Hope and the community-based play A Lifetime to Master by Merry Ellefson.

Generator is dedicated to:

  • Multi- and interdisciplinary collaboration

  • Generating works that invite dialogue between artists and communities

  • Creating experiences that mirror our nation’s diversity and celebrate our differences and commonalities

  • Reflecting on how we might better work toward equity & inclusion in our society
