About Us:
In February of 1920, a group of Princeton student thespians staged their first production. Their theater was a dormitory room. Their curtain a blanket hung over a string. An eager audience of four watched an intrepid cast of five perform a parody of Nijinski and the Ballet Russe. Theatre Intime was born. The goal for the 1921-1922 season was a real theatre building: Murray Hall, a chapel then used by the Philadelphia Society. Theatre Intime, the group that still maintains Hamilton-Murray Theater's operations, takes its name from the French word for "intimate," the best word to describe the 200-seat theater.

From aspiring playwrights to Broadway-bound actors to future professional directors, Intime has provided theatrical support and facilities for generations of Princeton students. Congregating at Intime, they work together with vigor and youthful enthusiasm to work, making their exciting dreams into realities. Since its inception, all of Intime's shows have been produced without any University support. Students are solely responsible for every aspect of the theater -- from acting to directing, fundraising to administrating.

Theatre Intime has provided the finest quality entertainment for the student body and the surrounding community for more than eigthty-five years.
