Founded in 1997, Oberon is an off-off Broadway non profit theatre company. Now in our 25th season, we have produced over 60 full-length productions and more than 100 staged readings of original plays. Oberon now has two dozen active members and many more regular collaborators, including award-winning actors, playwrights, directors and designers.
Oberon Theatre Ensemble is an active player in New York’s independent theatre community. Each season we combine classic, contemporary, and new works in a format that allows each to highlight and enhance the other. We juxtapose new against old in a single evening or in a repertory schedule, with our ensemble of actors and directors nimbly jumping from one world to another to draw our audiences fully into the experience.
We believe in the joy of a well told story, the connection offered by a supportive community, and the magic of the theatre. Oberon actively works to share this magic with others by reaching out to the community. We offer discounted student and senior tickets to our performances, and create shows that we can bring to schools, senior centers, and hospitals. We have also presented shows free in Central Park and strive to keep all our offerings affordable.
Our commitment to cultivating and invigorating a diverse theatre community remains steadfast. In a time when Off-Broadway theatres are closing, ensemble theatre groups are all but unheard of, arts funding largely nonexistent, and theatres both large and small focused on finding the next big commercial hit, Oberon remains your community performance arts theatre.
