NextStop Theatre Company is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Our art is made possible by generous contributions by forward thinking individuals, arts agencies, and businesses who believe–like we do– that gathering together for great live theatre is life-changing.

Not only do our audiences have fun, but theatre enables us to practice empathy and understanding for experiences, cultures, and perspectives that may be vastly different from our own.

In early 2013, when we first announced our plans to transition to a professional theatre company, a group of our most loyal and dedicated patrons stepped forward with financial contributions (and ticket orders!) without even knowing what shows we were planning or changes to the organization we might make. They made a “Leap of Faith” with us, and we are forever grateful.
