We will be presenting ONE additional performance of William Missouri Downs' smash hit comedy Mad Gravity on THURSDAY MAY 21 at 7:00 pm.  What makes this performance, special besides it being one more chance to see a great play is that the playwright will be joining us for the evening!  We will hold a small meet and greet reception after the performance so you can meet him

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.
