  • Additional Details

    I need a name for my theater company. I have a few finalists of my own, but before I make a decision, I wanted to see if you fine folks could generate something to change my mind. Please note that even if I go with one of my own names, I will still choose a winner from SquadHelp, so payment to one person is guaranteed. We will be a small theater company and will create family, children and adult entertainment. Because we will have projects which involve all age levels, I’d like a name that works with all levels. Therefore, cute can be good, as long as it is cute with a bit of an edge. A little dark is fine too, so long as I can make it ironic or brighten up the darkness with branding. We may perform a puppet show for kids, or a murder mystery for adults, or a Shakespeare comedy. We may teach acting classes to kids, teens or adults. We may engage disadvantaged youth in the arts. We may do the same with adults. We are not a “theater” per se. We have no physical building. We will perform and teach at various locations around town, or at schools, or in libraries, or on the street, etc. Therefore, we are theater makers, theater teachers, a theater company, a theater group, or players, troupe, ensemble, theater lab, productions, joint, studio, story wagon, traveling caravan, cabaret, etc. I don’t want to be too strict about this, but the name you submit may or may not contain the words theater, players or theater company, etc. If it’s long, then probably not is the better choice. So, for example, maybe I select ShowPeoplez because the .com is available. I would use showpeoplez.com as the domain, and then I could choose to brand it as either ShowPeoplez Theater Company or simply ShowPeoplez. Think of the name being used in a sentence or on a poster. Presented by X . . . or X Presents . . . or An X Production. Theater vs. Theatre? The more American version (where I am located ) is theater, but I am open to either spelling. I’m okay with ironic or funny or quirky names--but not too weird, so we turn off potential arts donors or parents. I’m okay with animal names, and I don‘t mind references to sci-fi or campy-ness or classic movies. I’m okay with names which imply something exotic or European, as long as it’s easy to spell when someone hears the name. The cool thing about theater names is--you can be very creative. Ideally, both .com and .org domain names will be available for this theater company name. (The winner will likely have both of these TLDs available.) The name should be short enough for a twitter handle. If a twitter handle is not available, I can always add “theater” or TC to a handle to make it work, though I don’t want to use a TC abbreviation in the actual domain. Some of my favorite existing theater company names include: Little Earthquake, Red Ladder, WildWorks, Hounded, PigPen Theatre Co., Tall Stories, Scamp Theater, Lost Watch, Mice on a Beam, Knuckle and Joint, Urban Fox Theater Company, Shaper Caper and Hot Tin Roof.
