About the Company
New Moon Theater is a touring company of full-time, professionally trained theater artists who are dedicated to bringing exciting, imaginative live performances directly to children and family audiences.
We're passionate about introducing children to live theater and making art a part of their everyday lives. New Moon productions enhance school curriculum and take learning beyond the traditional classroom environment. New Moon Theater currently has ten assembly programs in repertoire, focusing on opera, world wide folk tales, history and science.
In addition to performing, we are dedicated to teaching performing arts to children, and have developed classes and residencies to introduce children to drama & opera.
Founded in 2006 by Tom Zielinski, Kristin Barnes & Executive Director Julie Kurzava, our artistic team has been creating interactive children’s’ theater pieces since 2003. Since 2006, New Moon Theater productions have been seen and enjoyed by over 80,000 people.
New Moon Theater has performed in public and private schools throughout Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, as well as Port Discovery Children’s Museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Peabody Institute, the Chesapeake Arts Center, the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Artscape and the Maryland Renaissance Festival.
New Moon Theater is a registered 501(c)3 corporation, funded in part by an operating grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where arts thrive. We are also proud to be on the Maryland State Arts Council’s Arts in Education rosters of Visiting Performers and Artists in Residence.
