What I have always enjoyed about the festival itself is the immediacy of the stories. With only ten minutes to entice, excite, and entertain, the shows at InspiraTO set quite a challenge for themselves. I recommend checking out all of the shows to see how ten minutes can tell the story of a lifetime. - Jeff Kerr (Mooney on Theatre), InspiraTO 2016 theatre review.We’re fired up for our 11th season. Kick start your muse. Change gears. Pivot. Adjust. Leave you comfort zone. Look to make a “shift”.
