Intrepid Theatre Lab is dedicated to fostering an awareness and appreciation for classical and contemporary works to people of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Our primary philosophy is one of minimalism and simplicity in order to maintain a strong emphasis on language and traditional storytelling methods.
We strive to create work that is accessible and relevant to modern audiences and to explore new ways to invigorate the public interest in a theatre for all people. Intrepid Theatre Lab continues with public and educational outreach initiatives to create a forum which encourages the interaction between artists and the audience while reflecting on the issues and interests of our surrounding communities. These tenets are fundamental to Intrepid Theatre Lab's mission of developing a greater appreciation and understanding of the beneficial value of theatre and art in the community.

BAMA Theatre Company is now doing business as Intrepid Theatre Lab, under the direction of Greg Foro and Casey McClellan, the company's new artistic director. Casey and Greg have collaborated on a wide array of theatrical productions, ranging from off-off Broadway to regional theatres. Foro played Malvolio in BTC's highly acclaimed production of Twelfth Night, directed by McClellan. That production went on to a sold out run at The State Theatre of New Jersey in conjunction with Rutgers University and the Mason Gross School of the Arts.
A little about our roots. The BAMA Theatre Company began as an ensemble of eight University of Alabama graduate students in residence at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. This unique group of young artists from around the country came to train and work together in historic Montgomery, Alabama, and formed an exceptionally intimate artistic relationship. Their first production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was developed as a 2007 Acting Lab project during the second year of graduate school. BTC's East Coast debut was made in August of 2009 at the 13th Annual International Fringe Festival in New York City and received rave reviews and attention from the likes of Time Out New York, NYTheatre.com and The New York Times. BTC is a 501 (C) 3 non profit corporation with the state of California.
Intrepid Theatre Lab is eager to bring their unique vision of theatrical storytelling to Sacramento and Northern California.
