Sponsor a show:

NST is proud to make our home in the historic Blue Hill Town Hall. Over the years, we have put time, thought and resources into improving the upstairs theater space, which is used by many. This space offers an intimate experience of live theater, with, at most, only 100 seats available. However, this limitation on capacity also means there is a limit on how much we can make through ticket sales without raising ticket prices. Consequently, we rely on sponsors to help us maintain the quality of production our audiences have come to expect and cherish. If you are interested in sponsoring an upcoming show, please email Johannah at for more information about sponsorship opportunities and the many benefits our sponsors receive. Thank you!

Thank you to Kindred Spirits Veterinary Hospital, The First National Bank and Bob & Jan Marville for their sponsorship of productions in our 45th season.

Support a scholarship to the Performing Arts School, summer camp or Youth Theatre Speak:

Every semester of the Performing Arts School and each summer of the camp and Youth Theatre Speak, NST offers scholarships to ensure that no student is unable to attend our programs due to financial constraints. These scholarships are made possible through grants and generous donations. If you are interested in supporting our scholarship program, please contact Johannah at to find out more about giving the gift of theater to others. Thank you!
