No Strings Theatre Company, NSTC 

Welcome to the No Strings Theatre Company web site. We are the resident company of the Black Box Theatre, 430 N. Downtown Mall, Las Cruces, NM 88001.  Our Phone number is 575-523-1223






















We are often asked if reservations are necessary when attending NSTC performances at the Black Box Theatre.  The answer is that unless you have a reservation we cannot guarantee you a seat should you just come to the theatre!  Even if we have space, patrons with reservations are assigned seats in the order that they reserve so early reservations will get you a better seat.  Reserving is simple, just call us at 575-523-1223.


With our new seats and platforming, we can change the configuration of the theatre.  As a result the seating layout will not be the same for every show.  We will always have a link to the current seating diagram to aid you in choosing a seat when you reserve

The No Strings Theatre Company (NSTC) is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to expanding theatre horizons in Las Cruces by:

Presenting contemporary or little known works overlooked by other companies in the city

Providing an opportunity for local playwrights to develop new works

Creating opportunities for Las Crucens to see less traditional theatre forms such as puppet theatre, improvisation, and performance art.

We are committed to collaborating with other theatre and arts groups in the community to develop these goals. For example, writers groups such as Sin Fronteras/Writers Without Borders sponsor new play readings. We would like to provide an opportunity for the most promising of these plays to take the next step to rehearsed readings and perhaps fully staged performances as co-productions between No Strings and the originating writers group. Many interesting theatre works start off as part of classroom projects but fail to develop further because of the high demand on performance space and time in the academic environment. No Strings would like to be able to help these students develop their work. We would also envision our theatre as a place where student actors, designers, directors, and theatre artisans can refine their craft by involvement in high quality No Strings productions. There are many other possibilities and we would be glad to entertain proposals for projects which will enrich theatre in Las Cruces.
