Communication and audience participation are essential as we tailor performances to your needs and desires. We believe theater should be accessible to all people and attempt to make it so by presenting it in non-traditional settings. By infusing theater with the many skills we have acquired, we are able to amaze and amuse, educate as well as entertain. We plant the seeds of food for thought, cultivating the medium with wonder and laughter.
NEW WORLD Theater Company are explorers into the realm of theater, adventurers in the uncharted reaches of imagination, the channels through which thoughts become reality. We are creators!
Founding member, Jill Klein Rone, works with Travel Berkeley Springs to produce the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting.

"I have found them to be creative, resourceful, inventive and
original as well as professionally reliable. Their range of
repertoire is wide and is suitable for all sorts of situations
including outdoor festivals and events, family and children's shows
and educational performances. The murder mystery is great for corporate and other presenter's and have been some of the most entertaining evenings we have had. They are a pleasure to work with."
