Company History

We are a company of four artists who have had a history of performing together in the 2000’s presenting staged readings with live music with Nextbook, the national Jewish literature organization. We toured Chicago and Washington D.C., and performed yearly at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall until Nextbook reorganized to its present online format, The Tablet. In October of 2014,  I began making contact with my fellow artists to see if there was an interest in picking up where we left off, sans Nextbook. Indeed there was an excitement to start working and reading together again. In January of 2016 we made the decision to expand  our literary salons into an official company and thus Tales of the Alchemysts Theatre  was born. Shellie Shulkin – Actor & Managing Director.
