Truckee Community Theater was nominated last year as the best non-profit organization by the Chamber of Commerce. It has been extremely gratifying bringing live community theater back to Truckee and involving residents of all ages in our productions. We are proud to present award winning plays and Broadway-style musicals, summer camps for kids and teens, improv and acting workshops for all ages, and even a 10 Minute Play Festival each year showcasing original work from local writers. Recently, our Board was pleased to learn of Truckee’s selection by the State of California as a Cultural Arts District. With that new recognition comes the realization that a dedicated space for the performing arts is appropriate and necessary as we grow into an ever more thriving community offering dance, theater, live music, and other events to our enthusiastic patrons. I am thrilled to support the Stages at Northstar project, and eager to see the culmination of this dream, shared by many artists here in Truckee and Tahoe, to have our own performance space in this beautiful mountain area.
