Sam Rush and playwright Jack Neary founded New Century Theatre in 1991. NCT's artistic goal is to produce new works, area premieres and classic dramas and comedies that may not have been produced in a while. Since its inception, NCT has been in residence each summer at the Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts at Smith College.
NCT is an Equity theatre that takes pride in providing employment opportunities for area professional actors, designers and technicians. NCT is a training ground for many students and emerging professionals who gain valuable experience by working on our productions.
Primarily a summer theatre company, NCT now produces events beyond the summer months. Since 2002, NCT produces an annual production at Northampton High School featuring an all student cast.
