New Conservatory Theatre Center v ---

"Theatre documents our lives, describes what is happening around us and often dares us to take a closer look at ourselves. Now more than ever, it is vital for the Queer & Allied community to stand firm for the values of equality, respect, compassion and unity that will see us through the tough times and help restore a sense of balance.


NCTC remains committed to producing high quality theatre to effect personal growth, enlightenment and change. Our 2017-18 season features plays and musicals that challenge the status quo, wax political, exemplify unconditional love, call forth history, tickle our funny bones and encourage us to dream."


-NCTC Founder & Artistic Director Ed Decker
