Albuquerque Theatre Guild backbone of local theatre community

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Theatre guild is an umbrella organization of live theatre companies, theater practitioners, and theater lovers dedicated to making the Albuquerque area’s rich live-theatre scene better known to both residents and visitors alike. Thanks to the Guild, we here are able to have our weekly ‘Theater Thursday’ segment, highlighting a new show hitting the local scene.

More theatrical performances take place every weekend in Albuquerque than in any other U.S. city of its size. Live drama offerings range from musicals to dramas to comedies, first-person historical reenactments, religious-based plays, children’s theatre, improvisational cabaret, Shakespearean classics, American standards, and new work by emerging playwrights from a variety of backgrounds. Whatever your taste in entertainment, they are confident you’ll find something on ATG’s calendar that will send you away humming, or thinking, or laughing. The Guild also has a big hand in getting the youth in our community involved in theatre; different workshops and classes are made available to them year round. The Mayor Berry and the City have also helped make this possible.

Over forty theatre organizations and 150 individuals belong to the Albuquerque Theatre Guild.
