Chain Reaction Theatre Project

Cast of SEVEN, First Run

Chain Reaction Theatre Project ignites the human spirit by creating compelling, entertaining and socially conscious theatre, inspiring audiences, artists and communities to be more socially conscious world citizens.



 “The Flourishing Promise of Water’s Grace,”

Written and Directed by Shelley Smith
Blue Water

This thought-provoking performance, based on true stories, portrays our vexing global water issues juxtaposed with our national water issues. Diseases from unsafe water and and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Women and children walk miles per day collecting dirty water, which makes them sick. Time spent walking and resulting diseases keep them from school, work and taking care of their families, thus keeping communities in poverty. Find out more about our world water crisis and how you can be part of the solution.


We had an enthusiastic audience and lively talkback discussion on April 19th at Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship! We’d love to bring this performance to your group or organization! 

This is a community service project to raise awareness of global water issues juxtaposed with our local and national water issues. If your organization is interested in having us perform this short staged reading to raise awareness and fundraise for a water project, please contact

We received wonderful feedback from our past performances!

Nice work! I really enjoyed learning about global water issues thru your clever and interesting way of presenting the information. The fact that you are able to convey so much with so little continues to amaze me.”

“The actors did a great job of telling their stories and transitioning their characters and — my goodness — with accents no less! The projected images of the African landscapes really helped to support the dialogue.”

“I think that you should take this one on the road. There must to be a number of other organizations in the T.C. community who would respond well to it.”

“Thank you for another incredible production. It was very informative and thought provoking. I know I will view my water usage differently.

“Very nicely done!”

“Very well done…..and a powerful message!”

“Excellent, Thought Provoking and Tear producing. Thank You !!!!!”

“Thank you for the moving staged reading. It was amazing as are all of your performances! You made us think! Hopefully, we will all act!

“It really was a beautiful play. Your writing captured the sentiments of the role we play in water usage. From the women at the well to the suburbanites who are on a water moratorium. All terrifyingly true.”
