The Overtime Banner

The Overtime has a mission of “theater for the people” through new productions and workshops in acting, playwriting, and comedy improvisation. We are dedicated to providing original, innovative, and accessible entertainment at an affordable price.

We have produced over 75 new and original shows primarily by local authors. Our shows are all original works or unconventional adaptations of old classics. We specialize in world premieres of works never before seen on stage.

“Live Theater for the People by the People”

Help the Overtime Get a Makeover

The Overtime Theater BuildingOur little theater needs some love. We took over a lab and need to make our space look more inviting and well, like a theater! When we moved into our current location at 1203 Camden we knew we had our work cut out for us. We were taking over a building that was never meant to be a theater and turned it into two. Yep. Our building was a lab! That’s right! It has ugly white and green linoleum flooring. We want to put down a new floor and paint the plain white walls a nice warm tan color. We would also like to paint the outside and do a nice mural to let everyone know we ARE A THEATER! View our Kickstarter page and help us out!
