Message from our Executive Director


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Circle Theatre's renovated web page. Thanks to the assistance of a grant from the Community Foundation of North Texas and the talents of Anchor Marketing & Design, you are now able to visit us on a friendlier, more informative website.

It seems fitting to introduce our "new look" as Circle Theatre steps forward into its fourth decade of producing live theatre in Fort Worth, Texas.

Some of you may remember back to 1979, when I directed Who's Happy Now? at Garber Hall in the Scott Theater Building. Scott Theater's Executive Director, Bill Garber, generously gave me my first shot at directing by letting us use the Hall at no charge. Little did he, or I, know that this artistic venture would lead to the formation of a professional regional theatre, officially incorporated in June 1981.


Part of our mission is to "pay Bill's gift forward" by offering Circle's space, at no charge, to other folks embarking on their theatre career. If you are looking for your first chance to direct, design, or produce a play or staged reading, send a message via our contact us page.


Those who wish to join us in encouraging today's younger generation to appreciate live theatre, can read about High School Playwriting Project.

We are proud to present a full menu of comedy, music, and drama throughout Circle Theatre's main stage season of five shows each year.

People often ask, "What kind of theatre is Circle?" Frankly, the only common thread I can point out is that Circle has established a well-respected record for providing a high caliber of artistic work. As far as the type of shows is concerned, we are basically like a theatre buffet, offering all types of tasty selections. Some are frothy or sweet, others are a little heavier and more "meaty," but most will be something you are trying for the first time!

Thank you for visiting us on "the net." I hope to see you at Circle Theatre soon!
