NEWS and UPDATES

We at Newmarket Stage Company miss seeing you and hope that you are keeping well and safe during these challenging times. The NSC board of directors made the difficult decision to set aside plans already in motion, until further notice.  Despite the welcome news about vaccines, the immediate future for live performances remains uncertain.  However, our board continues to meet regularly and have created radio-inspired productions presented to our members and volunteers via ZOOM.   To contact us, please email: newmarketstagecompany@gmail.com

WE WILL OPEN OUR DOORS AGAIN!!

Newmarket Stage Company is a proud member of the Association of Community Theatres – Central Ontario (ACT-CO). The past year has halted all theatre and our community theatre sector is doing their best to stay alive during this horrible time. Many groups have tried their best, but sadly some have had to shut down permanently.

Video supplied by ACT-CO and our very own SUSAN LANE participated in the video. Please watch and enjoy!
