I invite you to join us for seven exceptional stories that speak to 
joyfulness, dignity, compassion and" unity. 

"The theatre is one of the few remaining places where we can gather together to find a collective heartbeat. A chance to witness, question, muse, and reflect in a space that welcomes all who cross its threshold. In this often confusing and digitally dehumanizing world it is comforting to find cathartic respite in art.

 

This season, NCTC once again serves up a smorgasbord of enticing offerings for our LGBT and Allied audiences—musicals and plays with both historical relevance and contemporary urgency. Whether you’re looking for escape from the daily slog, a challenge to the status quo, or simply for a deeper understanding of our shared humanity you are sure to find it here. I invite you to join us for seven exceptional stories that speak to joyfulness, dignity, compassion and unity."

 

-NCTC Founder & Artistic Director Ed Decker
