Teatro Español

Led by Eliana Stratico and the Mad Cow Theatre staff, this program offers productions, workshops, and resources to develop and grow Spanish-language theatre in Central Florida. We produce readings, full productions, and classes entirely in Spanish in order to enrich the cultural exchange, strengthen diversity, and build relationships in the community.

Science Play Festival

The Science Play Festival takes place each year in late winter or early spring. It's a one-weekend series of readings of plays about science, combined with audience discussion and also including science-related events. Our artists love the festival because it allows them to explore roles and subjects that otherwise they may never get to play.

Past plays have included David Auburn's Proof, Deborah Zoe Laufer's Informed Consent, David Mamet's The Water Engine, Lauren Gunderson's Silent Sky, and many more.
