WHO WE ARE

Inspired and created by THE NETWORK NYC, the NETWORK THEATRE COMPANY is a committed group of new and seasoned actors, writers, directors, and revolutionaries dedicated to presenting the unique and powerful talents of our members through showcase performances. We strive to break artistic boundaries, touch hearts, and build a space of freedom through expression, truth, and power.

OUR VISION 

is to produce new work for actors and playwrights in the 10-minute format for the purpose of showcasing their talents to casting directors, agents, managers and producers.

OUR MISSION

is to give opportunities to actors to perform on stage in New York City to hone their skills and their ability in a professional showcase production using developed material created especially for them. 

OUR PASSION

is in creating a company where love and respect are the keystones of the company and have been the cornerstone on which all of our work has been created over the past three seasons.

OUR BELIEF

is that when we come from a place of love and respect for each other and the work, we elevate ourselves and create work at our highest potential.

OUR HOPE

is that pieces will be created during our season that will move on to full length plays and films and inspire work on a larger scale.
