#MAGNETIC THEATRE a theatre dedicated to original works

MAGNETIC THEATRE is a not-for-profit production company that gives original works and the people who make them a home to share with enthusiastic audiences. We are proud to be the only professional theatre in the southeast (that we know of) dedicated to world premieres, and one of the few in the country.

Our motto is “New Plays, Locally Grown,” because almost all of the more than four dozen plays we’ve debuted since 2009 (three of which we’ve taken to The New York International Fringe Festival) have been written, directed, designed, performed, and staffed by Asheville residents. Operating year-round out of our beautiful home, Magnetic 375 (375 Depot Street in the River Arts District), The Magnetic Theatre believes that all the great ages of playwrighting have depended on theatre people living and working in an actual community like Asheville, and writing and producing works for that community.
