DENIZEN Theatre is a new 501(c)3 nonprofit theatre arts organization bringing intimate live professional black box theatre to Water Street Market in New Paltz, New York. The Village of New Paltz is a unique Hudson Valley destination, 90 miles from New York City and home to SUNY New Paltz.

We believe that the stories written now, in response to our current world, will have a lasting effect on our audiences and enrich our lives. Our mission is to explore what it means to be human with all its duality and complexity by producing professional, live theatre that provokes, challenges and inspires our community.

The transformative magic of live, black box theatre is not possible without the use of professional lighting instruments, sound equipment, platforms and seating.

As a nonprofit theatre organization, we rely on the generosity and support of the community to help us provide a home for diverse theatre artists.

This essential fundraising campaign will allow us to outfit our theatre and bring us within reach of our goal for our October opening.

DENIZEN Theatre, Inc. is a federally recognized 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Charitable Organization. Your support of this nonprofit is a fully tax-deductible donation.

Give from the heart. Consider donating today.
