Thanks to all who donated to our $10 Campaign (we were hoping to get 1000 people to donate just $10 between February 15 and May 31.) While we didn't get close in terms of the number of donors, we DID reach our $10K goal AND secured a matching gift of an extra $5K. Join is in thanking all those who gave what they could. AND ITS NOT TOO LATE! Our new Fiscal Year began June 1, and we are gearing up for the Women's Work Short Play Festival, and for another trip to Bogota, Colombia!


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!


OLIVIA LESLEY arrived at NPTC on June 11th ifrom Kansas City, MO, just in time to assist with the table readings of the new plays from the WW Short Play LAB. She will be serving as Assistant Stage Manager on one of the programs for the festival, as well as providing general production assistance on smaller summer projects. Two more young women will be joining us in July. We are very lucky to have such wonderful young people interested in coming to work at NPTC. And we know that Interns have a great time at 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, and Hong Kong as well as Texas, Michigan, Florida...and now Missouri!


Our highly acclaimed training program designed for those who want to become working actors returns for the 2017-2018 Season. Participants receive training in the fall and spring semester, culminating in a Showcase for industry professionals. Auditions will be held beginning July 8th; the program starts September 16th.

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.
