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 40th season and 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 40 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.
