About us :

Now entering our 50th season, Needham Community Theatre (NCT) is a non-profit organization with a membership of your friends and neighbors from Needham and surrounding communities. We welcome everyone with an interest in music, theatre, and community service to join us onstage, backstage or in the audience. Theatre experience is not required. We traditionally do two shows per year - a musical in the fall and a drama or comedy in the spring. (Please consider joining our play reading committee!)

One of our goals is to promote interest and education in the dramatic arts. In support of this goal, NCT provides scholarship awards to two graduating seniors from Needham High School each year. NCT also remembers that Community is our middle name, and has a tradition of giving to the community that has taken many forms, such as the donation of the band shell to the Park and Recreation Commission and the donation of stage equipment and curtain for the Carleton Auditorium at Newman Elementary School. Our most precious resources are our members who volunteer their time, advice and assistance to other community groups in their theatrical endeavors.
