Boston Theater Company is a 501(c) (3) non-profit dedicated to preserving the messages and historical language of classical scripts while approaching them in a contemporary way. We do this with our professional productions and our education program. BTC’s education department revolves around the belief that theater and creative drama can unlock a child’s creativity, confidence, and penchant for collaboration. We are dedicated to gender blind casting. As such we reassign gender roles when the right person is cast. We preserve the text by never rewriting it. We reassign lines to different characters and rearrange the order. We morph together roles to tell the full story with fewer characters. BTC consists of a team of young Boston based artists who are passionate about collaboration, classical text and creating art in fresh ways.

Dear Patrons, Artists and Friends, 2013 was a wonderful year. We became an incorporated company, built an administrative structure, and produced our very first production. NONE of this would have been possible without the generous support of all our friends, the wonderful collaborations with local artists, and our ferocious management team. From all of us at Boston Theater Company, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We wish you a wonderful New Year's and hope 2014 is filled with health, happiness and, of course, lots of theater!! We would like to end our year in the best way we know how... With some Shakespeare: "Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once." Julias Cesar Act 2 Scene 2
Happy Holidays!! This is our very first holiday season as a company and we couldn't be more grateful to all our friends, in the words of Shakespeare: "I count myself in nothing else so happy As in a soul remembering my good friends." The Tempest Act 2 Scene 3
We are very thankful to everyone who supported us these past months while we launched our company! Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Boston Theater Company.
