Celebrating our Champions

We are so grateful to the many individuals who have continued to support NTPA over the past year by helping our actors safely take the stage once again. It has been a difficult year for NTPA as we approached our 30th anniversary, not knowing if we would be able to reopen our theatres or what it would look like after the pandemic.

But our community is strong, and our families, volunteers, and staff have come together to overcome the most challenging obstacles we’ve faced in three decades. By supporting safety protocols to keep our actors safe, participating online when necessary, and doing their part to remain safe in activities outside of our theatres, this community has helped our actors to have their voices heard once again.

You helped us get to our 30th Anniversary. And we want to CELEBRATE everyone who made a difference this past year.
