OUR $10 DONOR CAMPAIGN IS EXTENDED!

WE HAVE REACHED $7000! Help us get to $10K by May 31st! and we will received a MATCHING GIFT OF $4000! We are very frugal at NPTC, and supported by many volunteers and in-kind donations. Yet we do a LOT with very little. Click the link above to find out what we have accomplished in the first months of 2017, and what's on the boards for the summer!


STAGE STRUCK! PERFORMS MAY 19-22

NPTC is pleased to partner with the Society for the Preservation of Theatrical History to co-produce AN ALL NEW VERSION of STAGE STRUCK!: Reclaiming the History of Women in Theatre. Join us for an intimate soiree with five fascinating actresses whose careers spanned the years 1860 to 2008 With Cynthia Bastidas, Paula Ewin, Ginger Grace, Mari Lyn Henry, Judy Rosenblatt, and Sandhi Santini.


OUR FIRST-EVER BOOK RECEIVES PRAISE!

We launched our first book on April 18th-- ON HER SHOULDERS: Collected Essays on Women Playwrights from the Past. The book includes biographies and dramaturgical analyses of 30 plays from 26 writers, spanning the years 1668 to 1970. Special Guest Mari Lyn Henry introduced us to Martha Morton, "the Dean of Women Playwrights", whose playwrights' association would become the Dramatists Guild. Books are now available for purchase!


NEXT ON HER SHOULDERS EVENT: JUNE 7!

Save the Date! Our next OHS presentation will be on June 7th at the New School. Directed by Melissa Attebery, the featured playwright will be Djuna Barnes (1892-1982). Intrepid journalist, visual artist, novelist, poet and playwright, Barnes broke all the rules and was the last of the original English-language modernists when she died in 1982 at the age of 90.

 

 


MEET MAX LEE, OUR SPRING INTERN

MAX LEE is spending the month of May and the early part of June with NPTC, assisting in the development and production of STAGE STRUCK. We will also have a wonderful young woman, Olivia Lesley, joining us from Kansas City for most of the summer to assist with the Women's Work Short Play Festival, and two rising seniors will be joining us in July via the Discovery Internship Program. Interns have a great time at NPTC while working with professional theatre artists on all aspects of developing and producing new plays. Over the years, we have had them from as far away as France and Germany, as well as Texas, Michigan and Florida!
