The mission of the Theater in the Open is to transform the magical tradition of storytelling into theater. Using puppetry, pageantry, music, movement, and acting, we present and explore myths, classic literature, original scripts, and modern dramas that reflect the diversity of cultures around us. We embrace our audiences and invite the community to create with us from seed to flower, enjoying the beauty of art and nature in an affordable, accessible, and educational manner. We develop the talent and range of abilities of our unified company through a disciplined work ethic, fun, and a desire to grow.
Theater in the Open has been part of Newburyport's artistic community for over 35 years! We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years.
