Mission Statement

THEATER FOR A NEW GENERATION is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to bringing great stories by the most exciting storytellers - past and present - to life. We strongly believe that the actor brings an immeasurable and unique history to the writer's lines, and we want our shows to arouse, provoke and inspire our diverse community.


Tinisha Smith is from New Orleans LA. She and moved to New York to pursue her career in acting almost 6 years ago! She has wanted to be an actress since she was 13 years old and has been in love with the art since. Tinisha has been a part of TFANG for 3 years now and has a major respect for the craft. She has always wanted to do film, but since moving to New York, she has acquired a fondness and love for the stage.  She has learned so much more about acting since being under the guidance of Mel Williams. With the help of God who is her source in all that she does, she is excited to be on the journey of making her dream of becoming a world renowned successful actress. Her reality!
