Mission Statement

The Westchester Collaborative Theater is a multicultural, cooperative theater company located in Ossining, NY, dedicated to developing new work for the stage and bringing live theater to our community. We are local playwrights, actors, and directors who employ a laboratory approach in which new stage works are nurtured through an iterative process of readings, critiques, and rewrites. Work deemed ready for production is performed for the public at various local venues.

Description

The Westchester Collaborative Theater, located in Ossining, NY, is a theater company dedicated to nurturing new work for the stage. Member playwrights, actors, and directors participate in a Lab process where, three nights per month, new plays are read and critiqued.

Guest artists who have participated in these ongoing labs include such notable theater professionals as John Pielmeier, B.T. McNicholl, Mark St. Germain, Campbell Scott and Mart Crowley.

WCT currently presents two mainstage productions and several play readings annually. Material for these productions is developed through our Lab process featuring member actors and production teams.

We are committed to furthering theater arts in our community. To that end, we are involved in programs developing youth theater and outreach to local senior residences and arts organizations.

WCT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and is a recipient of production grants from ArtsWestchester and New York State Council on the Arts.

We currently have over one hundred twenty playwright, actor, and director members from the Tri-state area who take part in our activities.
