What is the Alamance Repertory Theatre Company

ARTC … bringing quality entertainment to Alamance, Guilford, & Forsyth counties


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 year and a half, 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.
