Marietta Theatre will strive to bring back to 11 Whitlock Avenue the quality professional theatre that emanated from that spot for almost thirty years.
Our belief is that theatre serves to bind a community through our common appreciation of great art and talent. When we empathize with the characters' heartaches and joys, in those moments we are united.
The community is also united by participating in the process of producing the plays. Marietta Theatre will provide a meeting ground for the whole community on which we learn the art of theatre through classes, internships, and most importantly, through volunteering to work with us in puttin on and running the shows.
In each season, at least one production will be an all-volunteer production, with the entire cast and crew coming from our community.
The goal of Marietta Theatre is to keep to a tight budget, adhering to the principle of minimalism, which puts the emphasis on characters, actors and audience, and the stories they share, and in so doing, makes theatre more affordable and accessible. This is the model that propelled Greater Tuna and A Tuna Christmas to be two of the most produced shows in American theatre's history over the past thirty years.
