Northside Theatre Company (NTC) was founded in 1978 by Richard Orlando. In 1980, NTC became a registered non-profit organization. Northside is currently in its 36th season and receives national attention for new play development while leading the way in re-defining the integrity and importance of small theatre organizations and their critical importance to the development, of industry standards and emerging artists. We are committed to theatre for all people, without regard to age, race, creed, culture or physical abilities, Northside is devoted to the manifestation of the human spirit by creating dramatic art through heart, collaboration and exploration.
For 38 years, Northside hallmarks have been experimentation, education and performance. Northside Theatre Company has been as much a philosophy as a production company. We are a place where imagination and inventiveness have a chance to blossom, a place where the human spirit is explored in bold and unpredictable ways.
Northside is an opportunity for emerging artists to work with and learn from seasoned professionals. On stage, old and young merge in a relentless pursuit of quality to give our audiences, liberating experiences.
Northside Theatre Company offers a full range of theatre services including: Open Auditions, Outreach Projects, a Five Play Main stage season and staged readings throughout each season.
All of us at Northside have found NTC a very special place in which to work, discover and create.

The Northside Theatre Company is funded in part by:
City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs
Silicon Valley Creates
IBM Matching Grants Program
San Jose Rotary Club
These funders have been steady supporters of our company for over 3 decades. Without their support and the private donations from people like yourself who contribute regularly, Northside would be much less of an artistic force in our community. Thank You.
