About Theatre Knights
Welcome to the Home Page of Theatre Knights, Manchester, New Hampshire's premier young people's theatre company, and two-time National Finalist at the American High School Theatre Festival. Our performance venue is the beautiful Robert A. Baines Auditorium at 9 Notre Dame Avenue, on the West side in the Queen City. An active member of the International Thespian Society and the New Hampshire Educational Theatre Guild, our company is committed to producing top, professional-quality live theatre, as well as providing its young actors and technicians with a solid and usable background in all aspects of theatre and theatre production.
Any student currently enrolled in the city of Manchester, public or private, or from a Manchester tuition community, grades 6 through 12 can become a member of Theatre Knights and participate in its productions and activities. Our company operates like a professional regional company would, and is run by its students. There are many areas of participation, including business and stage management, designing and building sets, costumes, props, lights, make-up, publicity and advertising, and of course, acting. Our production company is supported by the only full-time theatre curriculum in Manchester, which is also one of only a handful in the State. Those who perform on stage are selected through a competitive audition process. Not everyone who auditions gets to be on stage, but anyone can be involved in the company if they wish to be.
