About Us

The Albuquerque Theatre guild is an umbrella organization of live theatre companies, theater practitioners, and theater lovers dedicated to making the Albuquerque area's rich live-theatre scene better known to both residents and visitors alike. We are happy to act as your usher and guide to the wonderful wealth of entertainment possibilities that greater Albuquerque offers every weekend!

More theatrical performances take place every weekend in Albuquerque than in any other U.S. city of its size. Live drama offerings range from musicals to dramas to comedies, first-person historical reenactments, religious-based plays, children's theatre, improvisational cabaret, Shakespearean classics, American standards, and new work by emerging playwrights from a variety of backgrounds. Whatever your taste in entertainment, we are confident you'll find something on ATG's calendar that will send you away humming, or thinking, or laughing.

Over forty theatre organizations and 150 individuals belong to the ATG. Our brochure, Albuquerque Spotlight on Live Theatre, published twice a year and available at our member theaters and many other locations around Albuquerque, introduces you to our member theatres and tells you of the productions they are planning in the coming months. Or you can download a PDF version directly from this website, from the link at the left.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to promote public awareness of theatre in the greater Albuquerque area, to encourage the growth of theatre audiences, to foster cooperation and collaboration among the member organizations, and to facilitate and assist the work of individual members involved in all aspects of theatrical production.
