Mission Statement

The mission of New Edgecliff Theatre is to serve the Greater Cincinnati area by presenting in an intimate setting small-scale theatre pieces designed to engage the human and thoughtful in all of us. We focus on contemporary work by lesser known, new, or infrequently produced artists that deserve attention. Our vision is to establish a unique connection between performer and audience, where social and political questions are fearlessly posed. NET reaches out to a broad cross-demographic audience with dynamic presentations. We stress intimate performing spaces and minimalist sets in our effort to provide the most immediate and unfettered artistic experience.

Description

Executive Director Michael Shooner established New Edgecliff Theatre in 1998, building on a concept of locally-produced professional educational theater that he had first experienced at Edgecliff College in the 1970s. His first acting job with the new group (Eric Bogosian's Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll ) earned Mr. Shooner a Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEA) nomination as Best Actor. The organization incorporated the following year and mounted two full-scale productions during its first season: All in the Timing , produced in collaboration with Xavier University and presented at the University, and The Woolgatherer , presented to critical acclaim at the Fifth Third Bank Theater in the Aronoff Center. In 2000, NET received 501(c)(3) status
