Vegas Theatre Company began with the name Cockroach Theatre Company which was established in 2003 as a live theatre production company performing at various locations in and around southern Nevada. It has continuously operated since, establishing residency in its current home – the 80-seat black box theater inside Art Square in the City of Las Vegas Arts District – in 2013. At this location, it has produced, co-produced, facilitated and offered its venue for the production of plays, adult acting workshops, children’s theatre camps, opera, novelty acts, improv, and theatre festivals. It is run by an all-volunteer staff and a corps of dozens of volunteers; cast and crew for each production are paid a stipend on a contract basis.
Vegas Theatre Company seeks to promote arts and cultural activities in the Arts District and in Las Vegas more broadly and provide a venue for local and regional talent to perform and be paid.
