About Touring Theatre of North Carolina

Touring Theatre of North Carolina is a not for profit, active producing professional theatre that celebrates the on-going human search for dignity across lines of ethnicity, gender, economic status, religion and age.

Touring Theatre is a Laboratory: It looks for local stories. It develops and premiers new works drawn from literature, historical documents, and from people within its community. Most years it premiers three new works in its Chamber Series, introducing one or two of them into its touring production inventory.

Touring Theatre is Relevant: It emphasizes relevancy by responding to the concerns, celebrations and commemorations of its local and state community.

Touring Theatre is Collaborative: It collaborates with community organizations, groups, scholars, and others who are engaged in the subject matter being presented in order to produce the most relevant and authentic work. Often community partners will create the space for facilitating post-performance discussions.

Touring Theatre is Local: It gathers stories of local relevance and is firmly rooted in the central North Carolina community. All of its productions are developed and premiered in Greensboro, NC, before becoming available for touring.

TTNC is Accessible: It brings high quality, educational and vibrant theatre productions to all corners of the state and beyond.
