About TesserAct Theatre Ensemble...

Bringing theater to the community, and the community to the theater!


Palatine-based TesserAct Theatre Ensemble produces quality live entertainment with local talent, including multi-generational families of performers. We are a 501c3 Illinois non-for-profit corporation, founded  in 1993 by Artistic Director, Tamara Jackson-Kist.  

The name was inspired by “A Wrinkle in Time”, by Madeline L’Engle, a “Tesseract” being the fourth dimension, the bridge, a wrinkle, allowing you to cross from one place to another, one time to another.  Mrs. Jackson-Kist felt theater could be viewed as a way of taking audiences places they might never go on their own, physically and emotionally, and a new theater company was born.
