Near West Theatre
Near West Theatre (NWT) changes lives. By producing large-scale, inter-generational musical productions, NWT involves volunteers of all ages and walks of life both on stage and backstage. Since 1978, NWT’s commitment to affordable, professionally-directed theatre has provided a connection to the performing arts for economically diverse audiences. This earned NWT the Governor’s Award for Community Development and Participation.
Eager to be accessible to all members of the community, NWT will move from its third floor home in a church hall to a newly-constructed, 300-seat, state-of-the-art educational theatre complex at W. 67th Street and Detroit Avenue, in the heart of the Gordon Square Arts District.
