History and Mission
The Livingston Theatre Company, Rutgers' Premiere Musical Theatre Organization, is a home for theatrical arts at Rutgers University. Founded in the fall of 1998, the LTC provides quality and affordable musical theater to Rutgers students and the communities of Central New Jersey.
Membership and Involvement
The Livingston Theatre Company is open to all undergraduate students of Rutgers University, regardless of college affiliation or major. We encourage all students to take part in productions, and to attend our open meetings, special events, shows, and auditions. We have opportunities for actors, directors, designers, stage crew, musicians, business people, and student leaders. Each year, hundreds of students from across the university get involved in our main stage productions. If you are interested come to our General Interest Meeting during the opening weeks of each semester, or to any of our open General Board meetings throughout the year.
The Livingston Theatre Company produces three musicals per year. Our productions run for several performances over one weekend. Throughout our storied history, productions have taken place in both the College Hall of the Livingston Student Center (the new and old), as well as Crossroads Theater in the theater district of downtown New Brunswick, New Jersey. We are dedicated to bringing both famous and lesser known musicals to Rutgers.
The Livingston Theatre Company is completely run by undergraduate students are Rutgers in New Brunswick from all schools. The head of the company is a 4 member Executive Board, which is elected by the membership, and a General Board that is chosen through applications and interviews. Anyone may apply, and selection is based upon experience and enthusiasm. Production positions such as directors, choreographers, musical directors, stage managers, and designers and technicians are also filled for specific shows via application and interviews. Anyone interested in becoming a part of the company, in any position, should check out the Getting Involved links at the top of the page for more information.
After a storied history, the LTC has established a strong base of alumni who continue their support to the organization. We always love having our alumni back, and enjoy a strong support system from them as well.
