New Hampshire Theatre Project (NHTP) was created in 1984 by a group of professional performing artists who were dedicated to collaboration, education and community-building. In 1988, NHTP incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. During the first 15 years of our existence, we were primarily an outreach organization, conducting hundreds of professional artists-in-residence programs in communities throughout New England, and touring educational productions from Maine to Florida. NHTP artists taught theatre to thousands of children, teens and adults through classes and summer camps; collaborated with numerous community organizations; and premiered a number of original works including Beyond Myth for Kitchensink Theatre, Trash World and Along the Boomerang Coast for Ha'Penny Theatre, Neighborhoods and I Have Not Yet Begun to Fight at The Music Hall, Womenswerk at McDonough Street Theatre, and Waiting for Godot at the Mill Pond Center. NHTP has always been based in Portsmouth, NH, although our office and studio space changed frequently in these early years. The Youth Repertory Company began in 1998.
