Horizon Theatre Company's mission is to connect people, inspire hope, and promote positive change through the stories of our times. For more than 30 years, we have developed and produced contemporary theatre designed to empower, inspire, celebrate, enlighten, and build bridges in the Atlanta community. Horizon has won both critical acclaim and popular success with its professional productions of unexpected, exceptional new plays – area premieres of recent plays from around the world and brand new works that tell our own stories. Our New South Play Festival and PlayWorks program, now in its 19th year, develops and produces new plays from, for, and about the diverse contemporary South with an emphasis on plays by women, artists of color, and writers based in the South. Annually, we reach nearly 40,000 audience members, employ over 200 artists, administrators and technicians, and produce 5-8 full productions.
Through our artist and new play development programs, Horizon nurtures the undiscovered storytellers of our Southeast region and our country, seeking diverse artists including women, African Americans, and other minorities. Our education and community programs inspire the next generation of audiences and artists, cultivating the voices of the future and making the arts accessible to new, young and diverse audiences.
