Thank you for being a part of our best season yet!
Newton Theatre Company's fifth season was a whirlwind of ambition with incredible results, both onstage and off. As we go on a brief hiatus for the remainder of the summer, take a look back at all the incredible artistic and philanthropic work NTC did this year and get excited for our full 2018-2019 season announcement, coming soon!
JUNIE B. JONES AND SOME SNEAKY PEEKY SPYING marked NTC's third adaptation from the beloved children's series. With vibrant costumes and hilarious character portrayals, this production brought laughs to families all over the city.
ETHAN FROME was a heartwarming exploration of the conflict between love and obligation in a small New England town. Using inventive and intimate staging, our production was a tender new take on Edith Wharton's classic novel.
NATURAL SHOCKS provided NTC with the opportunity to join a national theater activism campaign against gun violence. This riveting one-woman show, complete with jazz music beforehand and a post-show talkback from local activists, raised over $700 for Moms Demand Action.
THE MONOLOGUE PROJECT: VOICES OF COLOR gave Newton's high school students of color the opportunity to share their experiences with the broader Newton Community. This process-centered show and subsequent talkback were as stirring as they were refreshing.
ADA AND THE ENGINE, performed at Washington Place, was a detailed and enchanting exploration of the mind and heart of Ada Lovelace. Sleek and satisfying, this staged reading raised over $1,800 for The Second Step.
KIDS DAY was a first for NTC. Combining musical performances, readings from Junie B. Jones stories, and family-friendly activities, this event was one of the highlights of our summer and raised over $400 for future NTC endeavors.
IPHIGENIA AT AULIS was the culmination of our past two summers' outdoor Greek tragedy productions. With dramatic designs and a tale of epic proportions, this production reminded us how awe-inspiring mythology can be.
Coming This Fall: Junie B. Jones Is Back!
Join us at the Hyde Bandstand for a staged reading of one of Junie B. Jones' most hilarious adventures! Mrs. has announced that Room Nine will be having Pet Day, but with no dogs allowed, Junie B. will have to get creative...

Thank you to everyone who came to see the final production of our 2018-2019 season, Iphigenia at Aulis! It was such a joy to bring Greek tragedy to the steps of Newton City Hall for the third summer in a row.
