The New Ensemble is a group of theatrical artists committed to developing forward-thinking, engaging work together-- work with literary merit , an ensemble approach and a commitment to emotional immediacy in performance. At this time, the plays chosen tend to be lean in scale, stark in aesthetic, with an emphasis on the relationship between the actor's voice and body with the text and action. Past productions have included the Fresno premieres of "The Pillowman", "A Picasso", "Copenhagen" and "Turn of the Screw."
Core Members of the Ensemble act as Actor/Managers of the troupe, contributing artistically and in a production capacity (as designers, stage managers, administrators, etc.).
The Ensemble holds open auditions for certain productions and is always on the lookout for new artists who share our love of adventurous and stimulating theater.
The New Ensemble is an all-volunteer organization and 100% of money from the box office, sponsorships, and earned income goes straight back into the productions.
