Since 1988 New Hampshire Theatre Project has been connecting communities through transformational theatre-making.

New Hampshire Theatre Project (NHTP) works in partnership with theatre-makers, schools, corporations, non-profits and community participants through four distinct areas of programming:  

  • MainStage Productions & Guest Artist presentations

  • On-site Camps, Classes & Professional Development Workshops

  • Artist-In Residence & Theatre For Life (for schools, businesses & community organizations)

  • Elephant-in-the-Room Series touring performances & community residencies.

NHTP was formed in 1988 by performing artists who connected through their dedication to collaboration, education and community-building. Since its creation, NHTP has continued to use the process of theatre to create revelatory experiences for individuals and communities across New England and beyond.

New Hampshire Theatre Project is located in the West End, the heart of Portsmouth, NH’s alternative arts district. Our versatile and intimate 50-seat black box space is a fully-accessible home to all on-site programs as well as MainStage productions.

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, NHTP is supported in part by the NH Charitable Foundation, NH State Council for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. We also receive generous support from hundreds of individuals, local businesses and community organizations.
