About DFA

Who We Are

Desperate For Approval is a collaboration of local artists  committed to producing independent, accessible, high-quality theater.  Our group includes playwrights, performers and technicians with a wide  variety of backgrounds, and also a guy we found in a bar during Star Trek trivia.

What We Do

We write and perform original comedy, musicals, classical adaptations, and Archer fan fiction. You can find us most often in St. Paul, MN.
