Awesome Theatre Experience
Oct 2019
I have seen 3 compelling plays produced by this professional theatre company. The material is contemporary and thought-provoking, the actors and creative teams are all very talented, and the space itself is cozy and innovative. If you head to New Paltz, take in a show at Denizen Theatre!

An AMAZING Play at an AMAZING and intimate Theater.
Mar 2020 • Family
My Mother (71), my Grandmother (92), my Daughter (15) and I (43), wanted to Celebrate my Birthday in a fun and different way while staying local, because my Grandmother has a difficult time sitting in the car for a long time. Normally my Daughter and I are Broadway bound for special occasions so we weren't anticipating much more than some nice family time together. However, we were all SOOOO PLEASANTLY SURPRISED by the caliber of acting, choice of Plays and the extremely comfortable intimate venue that we felt equally as entertained and pleased as if we had made one of our NYC trips to an actual Broadway Show... and all for such a reasonable price and the ease of it being practically right in our own "back yard". The performance had us literally crying, laughing, holding our breath and warming our hearts as if we ourselves were in the "experience". And then, to top it off, we walked over across the parking lot and enjoyed a delicious and eloquent meal at this charming little restaurant with outdoor tables looking over the picturesque mountains. Although, it was too chilly to utilize the outdoor dining, we found the inside just as quaint yet contemporary as one of our favorite City Eateries. We were all so pleased (and surprised at the Theater's comfortable seating for my 92 year old Grandmother to enjoy the entire show without any back complaints that usually come up), that we decided to make it a monthly tradition. We all STRONGLY RECOMMEND everyone to come and experience for yourselves what we believe is now one of New Paltz's and the Hudson Valley's Local Treasures!

Cutting edge small theater
Nov 2019
Great intimate innovative theater. Saw a fascinating, thought-provoking play. Combine Denizen with a weekend stay in New Paltz for the restaurants, boutiques, antiques, and gorgeous scenery.

Saw a wonderful play!
Feb 2020
We are lucky to have the new Denizen Theatre here in New Paltz, and even luckier to be able to see Terri Weagant’s astonishing performance in the last year's play, “Bo-Nita.” She inhabits the role of 13-year-old Bo-Nita with such ferocity, hilarity, and humanity—at an acting level one expects to see only in Manhattan or London. The writing transcends black comedy and achieves a resonant space of grace notes, of uncanny intelligence about human endurance. It is a rare example of how theatre magic is built, one plainspoken line upon another, until we are inside Bo-Nita’s heart, raw and glittering. Terri is a supremely gifted actor, and does justice to this precocious young girl struggling to endure a frightful comedic family. How did we ever live without Denizen?

Intimate and exceptional experiences
Dec 2019
Denizen Theatre has hosted a remarkable range of fascinating work. To be able to enjoy the work of incredible actors and playwrights from just a few feet away is a rare treat, which means that the price of a ticket at Denizen is extraordinary good value. Even the building itself is a work of art; and its perfect setting in the Water Street Market means that you can enjoy a show followed by a meal or cocktail nearby. Bravo, Denizen.

a startling find
Aug 2019
Off Broadway, indeed, at 90 miles from the city, but theater that is every bit as adventurous, every bit as professional and provocative .Plenty to do in the town that enfolds this gem, great eating , interesting shopping. and magnificent views to boot.

I hope to see you there!

I cannot sing enough praise for Denizen Theatre. I am a true fan. What a fabulous gift it is to have this jewel of a black box theatre in New Paltz. Its versatility has been treasured in such a short time. I have seen every production there so far. The selections are always thought provoking, speak to the times and touch one's heart. The actors are stellar. Set designs have been so creative. There is magic each time I walk into the theatre. I never know where the "stage" will be placed. What levels will be used? Will there be audience participation? It is always a mystery within the mystery of this theatre!

The ticket purchase process is smooth. The theatre made a decision to “go green”. All ticket sales are digital. There is no paper involved; this includes not having paper programs. The building itself is environmentally sound. Few people know (because it cannot be seen from ground level), that the roof is a “green roof” with plants growing on the top!

Aside from the plays alone, Denizen Theatre is a community hub. The theatre gives generously to local nonprofits (full disclosure, I am a part of a local nonprofit). If there is not a play running and a local nonprofit has a need for space, the Denizen may be a place to convene. There are also commendable partnerships with local artists. A new display of artwork is generated and on display for each show. Proceeds are split between the artists and a local nonprofit. How is that for kindness? Speaking of kindness, the staff are warm, compassionate are sure to greet audience members with a special welcome.

I trust that I will continue singing praises as I continue attending shows in the future. I hope to see you there!

A lovely little theater for both locals and tourists
Jun 2019
New Paltz is lucky to have such an intimate theater producing a wide range of work and appealing to an equally wide range of visitors. It's in the perfect spot, too, located in Water Street Markets, and walkable from town and the bus station/college campus. It's also just next door to a great restaurant and wine bar. Highly recommend supporting them!
