The Civic Theater Project

A Civic Theater Project production is far more than a performance; every step in the creation process– from writing to rehearsing, volunteer cooking to set construction, acting to attending– is an opportunity for engagement and connection across cultural divides.

When we talk about Civic Theater, we mean theater in the broadest sense of the word – a homemade carnival, a live-action automaton, an original dinner theater performance. The common thread of our theater projects is that they involve, entertain, reflect, and contribute to the community in which we live.

While community theaters traditionally produce pre-existing “professional” plays, Civic productions are made from the town. They are set in the region where they are performed, and are written by and for people who live there. Where many theaters serve audiences who have the cultural capital needed to attend, the Civic actively connects with unlikely theater goers. Success is measured not by press recognition or awards but by the diversity and engagement of our attendees. 

 

Our wider volunteer crew is massive, as we invite and include community participation at every step in the process. These volunteers come from all walks of life, offering a rich variety of professional and lived experiences.
