Thanks to New Century Theatre, you don't have to go to New York City or locate a convenient spatial wrinkle to see Broadway-worthy drama. That's because the Massachusetts-based company fills its seasons with a wealth of critically acclaimed works, local premieres, and new plays. Since its founding in 1991, New Century has made its mission to stage high-caliber productions—including Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and The Glass Menagerie—while simultaneously serving as a training ground for area actors and directors.
The founders of Valley Light Opera had one goal when they first lifted their curtain in 1975: to celebrate the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan. Why? They were smitten with the pair's witty wordplay and music, and saw how these have influenced modern Broadway musicals. In the years since that first production—H.M.S. Pinafore—the company has produced all 14 works in the G&S canon, from The Mikado to The Pirates of Penzance.
