What is the Alamance Repertory Theatre Company

ARTC … bringing live theatre to the Downtown Arts District in Winston-Salem, NC


The Alamance Repertory Theatre Company was created in 2017 by Walter Boyd and Gill Thornton.  Originally, it was a learning opportunity for Gill to learn how to direct, produce, write, and perform in quality theatre productions for her home school education.  ARTC did that and much more.  In the past 2 years plus, we have grown into a respected theatre company that strives to bring current plays to our audiences. We dare to touch on social issues that other companies shy from. We are a theatre company for the young at heart, run by the young…and not so young.

Alamance, loosely, means “all mankind.”  The goal of ARTC is to bring theatre to all people in multiple areas. We perform in Alamance, Guilford, and Forsyth counties. We are looking forward to branching out to other locations in the near future. As long as we can get there, we are willing to take theatre to those that want it. 

ARTC Theatre is located at 110 West 7th Street in the Downtown Arts District of Winston-Salem 

On street parking on Trade St and Liberty Street is available, parking garage on corner of Cherry St and 6th St, and also several lots across from the theatre.




Willingham Story Slam

Sunday, May 19 from 4-6 pm for a “School Days” Story Slam.

Volunteers from the community will perform a live, 5-minute recollection and reflection from their own experience, a true story based on the theme “School Days.”  

Audience members will volunteer to form judging teams to choose the most compelling story told at the event.

Tickets are $5 online or $7 at the door. Although admission is not age restricted, please consider that slam events are open mic. We do not control or know the story content in advance. Some stories may be explicit and meant for an audience aged 16 years and older. 

A free storytelling performance workshop will be held on April 20 from noon until 2 pm at the Creative Community Lab in the railroad building at 300 S. Liberty St, Suite 150, next to Willow’s Bistro.  

The workshop will be led by Joe Mills, with help from Laura Hart McKinney, professors at UNCSA.

In this revamped interpretation of the Stephen King novel, Carrie: The Musical follows a young woman with telekinetic powers. Carrie is tormented at school, and remains lost at home, with a fervently religious mother while love traps her in its maw. When PE teacher Miss Gardener, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class’s most vicious bully, has other ideas. Pushed to the brink, Carrie’s powers threaten to overwhelm her, and devour everyone around her in flame.
