Square One Teen Theatre was founded by Tim Jaekle and Zach Miko in June of 2007. The two recent high school graduates had worked together in several plays and events over the previous few years, and became very comfortable working with each other. After discussing the lack of classic plays being performed around Stratford, the two decided to work together once more. Jaekle and Miko formed their own theater company with plans to put on a performance every summer with teenagers from Stratford and nearby towns. Arsenic & Old Lace, performed during the summer of 2007, marked the debut performance of the newly formed organization; the first of many to come. Square One Teen Theatre is supported through a partnership with the Square One Theatre Company.
