FORTE STAGE COMBAT

SHOWS CHOREOGRAPHED

Here is a representative list of productions we have staged in professional, collegiate, community, and secondary theatre throughout the Midwest - primarily staged by Tim Frawley. These are just the productions that require staged sword fights. We have also arranged dozens of hand to hand fights and melees involving a wide variety of found weapons in plays not usually thought of as combat shows.
