About Theatre Macon
Theatre Macon was founded in 1986 to provide patrons with the opportunity to see theatrical productions at a reasonable cost, to provide members of the community with the opportunity to act in and assist with the production of plays, and to experiment with and present new plays and play forms in keeping with modern drama trends. The theatre also exists to provide education and training in developing interests and skills in performance, playwriting, and production techniques. The theatre also exists to provide an opportunity for apprenticeship in community theatre operation to interested persons.
Located in historic Macon, Georgia, Theatre Macon operates in the old Ritz Theater building downtown on Cherry Street. Our theater offers one of the most intimate performance venues in the area. Each year we produce nine full-length productions; including four Mainstage productions, two Youth Artists' Company productions, two Stage 2 Series productions, and one major summer production. Our Theatre provides diverse seasons spanning a large variety of genres including comedy, drama, musical, classical, and new productions. All auditions and technical positions are open and posted on the audition page of our website.
Youth Artists' Company
The Theatre Macon Youth Actors' Company was established in 1988 to provide Middle Georgia youth with the opportunity to practice and grow their talents in theatre arts. The company produces full-length productions each year which may include musicals, dramas, or comedies. Open auditions are held for all productions. Youth currently in grades 5-12 in a public, private, or homeschool are invited and encouraged to attend.
In 2019, the Youth Actors' Company was renamed to the Youth Artists' Company as the program had grown to include a variety of artists including actors, technicians, and musicians.

The Theatre Macon Stage 2 Series was established in 2019 as an incubator for local talent in the production, performance, technical areas of the theatre. These annual productions act as an extension of the Theatre Macon Mainstage Series and bring the best of Central Georgia Artists to Theatre Macon's stage. Stage 2 Series productions are produced by Theatre Macon, but directed by community members. Submissions for the Stage 2 Series directors and performances open near the end of each calendar year.
