Message from the President

As we enter our 59th season, NCT has some great things in store.  We have invested in the upgrading of our audio system with the purchase of new mics, new bodypacks, and new antennas, all of which will greatly improve performance sound quality.  Additionally, we’re doing some renovations and reorganizing.  Look out for upcoming changes to the green room and a complete overhaul of the costume room, both of which will provide more space and ease of movement.

 Our 2017-18 season was a tremendous success.  The season brought to NCT’s stage three shows that had not previously been produced by our organization. We began the season with the rousing The Mystery of Edwin Drood in which the audience participated in deciding the story line.  This was followed in March by the uproarious comedy Sister Act.  The season wrapped up with the world premiere of the musical A House Divided, co-written and directed by our very own Narb, Mike Salmanson.

 We’ve celebrated five seasons in our home at Overbrook Presbyterian Church and recently agreed to a lease renewal insuring us another five years.  The investment in our tech and structures will allow us to provide the best community theater experience in the area. 

 The 2018-19 season is going to be amazing.  We open in November with the irreverent Little Shop of Horrors directed by Justin Walsh (in his directorial debut at NCT).  Then in March, Linda Galati Hunt will be directing the classic West Side Story.  Our season will conclude in May with the hilarious California Suite, directed by Erin Guard (also debuting at NCT).  Get your seats early, because you can be sure the house will be packed for all performances!

 Fortunately, NCT is very lucky to have many experienced and committed volunteers in all aspects of our productions.  But as we all know, the operation of a community theatre takes more than talented people, it takes money.  And although our ticket sales are impressive, that alone does not cover all the expenses.  Upgrading the audio system was a costly yet very necessary investment.  So be sure to click on the “Membership” tab above.  And, while you’re at it, consider making a generous donation at the same time.  Then you can not only be a part of our organization, but also provide the support needed to continue our work in presenting quality theatre to our community.  And remember, since NCT is a non-profit organization, all donations are fully tax deductible.

 I look forward to seeing you at the theatre.


Jon Rivkind
President, Narberth Community Theatre
