Our Story

A Little About Us

AfterWork Theater is a community theater designed for everyday people to perform in New York City. We provide the extraordinary opportunity to perform in musicals, plays, musical revues, and more in a stress-free environment. No audition required. We’re all about fun, community, and creative self-expression. Come play with us.

Cost

Part of the stress-free environment is knowing you are already in. This isn’t about landing the starring role so we took that out of the equation and left only the fun part.

Time

If there’s one thing all New Yorkers can agree upon it’s that we have NO free time. We totally get that. That’s why we designed AWT to fit into the busiest of schedules. Rehearse approximately once or twice a week. That’s it.

Quality

Our professional creative staff will guide you through a true New York City theater experience. We hire the real deal but don’t be surprised if you end up duet-ing with them at karaoke after rehearsal.
