Commissioned Work

For over thirty-five years Touchstone has created original, award-winning theatre, receiving commissions and awards for its children’s work (Please Touch Museum for Whoopsi Kerplonk!), its socially relevant adult work (The Otto Rene Castillo Award for Political Theatre for Don Quixote of Bethlehem and Steelbound), and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Rockefeller Fund, Map Fund, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (Journey from the East, A Resting Place, Deadalus in the Belly of the Best, and many others).

Co-Production design work by Jp Jordan with Christopher Shorr for Moravian College Theatre Company’s Oedipus, 2010

We’ve created community-based works and directed, designed, and produced original theatrical works for a wide variety of commercial and private interests, including the Lehigh Valley Health Network, Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, Borough of Tamaqua, Historic Bethlehem Partnership, Moravian Academy, and Moravian College.   If you feel Touchstone might serve your needs through the galvanizing of your story and community into a dramatic work, please contact Touchstone’s Artistic Director JP Jordan via email or by calling 610-867-1689.
