Bombers,

I am terrible at naming stuff. For school, I have to craft a mock "Drama Company". Mainly to produce a crappy play or something. I don't know what the real goal is, it hasn't been fully explained. I NEED A NAME. So, give me some ideas. I'm not sure at how Theater or Drama companies are named. I'm too lazy to look up existing companies to make a spoof name or something.

Thanks, ya'll!

Your pal,

Steve

Just take a quote from Shakespeare like "The Play's the Thing" or "Mortal Coil Players" or something.

I'm watching Futurama right now, so that should explain my choice:

The Lesbian Convent Across the Street.

If that doesn't work as a troupe name, it'll always work as the name of your first play.

The Producers seems like a pretty fitting name, then.

Some other ideas, all admitedly terrible for a school theater group

  • Baby Mama Drama Productions
  • The Daddy Issues Players
  • Hot, Young Thespians
  • It Was Either This Or Model U.N.

A list from my home town. I would highlight Gorilla Tango, Babes with Blades, Will Act For Food are cool dudes, and Quest Theatre Ensemble do good work.

I am not sure what to suggest, as most of the suggestions so far are legitimate. Stay away from Shakespeare. Modern Shakespeare, gay Shakespeare, just, fuck no. Stop it. Also, if you use the word 'fusion' in your company name I will call you a sailor.

As far as movies or shows about theater production, I do not have any help for you. You know any films that follow the sordid life of the key grip? The struggles of the gaffer? That is all disc 2, behind-the-scenes extra stuff at best. Production journals. Director's notes. That sort of thing. The people behind the scenes tend to stay behind the scenes.

Best of luck to you Steve.
