Newtown Arts Company is a 501 (c ) (3) non-profiit organization.
While Bucks County is blessed with a quite of few community theatre groups, what differentiates Newtown Arts Company is its commitment to community. Through our scholarship program which has granted over $150,000 in awards over the past 35 years to helping ensure that the Bucks County Playhouse Student Theater Festival endured while the Playhouse was undergoing extensive renovations, the Newtown Arts Company fosters a love of theatre in area youth that truly lasts a lifetime and is manifested in award-winning productions delivered by local talent of all ages.
Theme: Tradition Supporting Creative Excellence
We want to convey our gravitas in 2 realms
1. Our roots, history, and expertise in theatre production being brought to bear in excellent performances today and in promoting/supporting the development of tomorrow’s performers/theatre art professionals (stage management, technical theatre [set construction, lighting], musicians).
2. Our root, history, and expertise in supporting the community at large- Newtown Arts Company is a staple of the community – active members in the Newtown Business Association and participants in many community events such as the Annual Holiday Parade, Market Day, and Welcome Day.
