We are actively seeking individuals who are interested in joining the new NHTA Board of Directors starting August 2023.
The New Hampshire Theatre Alliance is looking to identify and elect a new Board of Directors to build upon the foundational work of the Interim Board of Directors, and lead the continued impact and success of the organization as they further support the vibrant New Hampshire theatre arts of the future.
The New Hampshire Theatre Alliance (NHTA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 2003, that works with NH theatre companies and artists to foster collaborative conversation, resource-sharing, and audience engagement. Believing that theatre is a public good vital to the health of the Granite State, we advocate for the growth of NH professional, community, and youth theatre organizations by promoting the pursuits of individual member companies and highlighting the impact of the performing arts locally and statewide.
Celebration: We celebrate New Hampshire's thriving performing arts scene throughout the year and at our annual Awards Night.
Collaboration: We connect New Hampshire's network of artists, companies, audiences, and our community partners.
Promotion: We publicize participating companies' work and champion the value of theatre arts in New Hampshire and beyond state lines.
NHTA’s Board of Directors is the governing body, overseeing vision, mission, and the overall operations of the organization. Our board members are elected for two-year terms. Members of the NHTA Board of Directors represent the organization by establishing, overseeing and enforcing the optimal fiscal, operational, and strategic performance of the organization. In addition, they are charged with the supervision and oversight of the mission. They are responsible for making decisions, delegating work, and assuring decisions are carried out in the manner intended and according to stated governance and oversight policy. Ultimately, members regularly establish financial goals, strategic objectives, governance standards, and operational best practices to ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of the NHTA as related to the stated mission and vision of the organization, in support of participating member companies, and in consideration of the greater New Hampshire theatre arts community.
We are looking for passionate, collaborative, and knowledgeable individuals to lead the NHTA through the next phase of evolution as we emerge from the difficult and disruptive experience of the last two years. While we welcome and are interested in hearing from all individuals qualified to serve as a member of the NHTA board, we are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with background and experience in:
Fiscal Management and Accounting
Law and Compliance
Technology and Digital Applications
Fundraising and Development
Grant Writing and Management

As the theatre arts across the state of New Hampshire represent a truly diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community, it is important that the NHTA Board of Directors are a reflection of the community they serve.
