The purpose of the Long Island Theatre Collective, Inc. (LITC) is to bring quality, professional, affordable theatre to the Long Island community. No one will be turned away from an LITC production because they can’t afford the price of a ticket (contact us to discuss how we can help). Ticket revenue and monetary donations are put directly toward our productions, community outreach, and compensation for our artists.

the long island theatre collective

LITC brings new and surprising performances to our community. We create cutting-edge adaptations of classic texts—and make those stories new again. We produce visceral modern plays from contemporary voices such as McDonagh, Shepard, and yet-unknown work from the next generation of storytellers right here on Long Island.

Our events often feature live music, visual art, and other surprising opportunities for "stories" to be defined broadly and boldly. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with artists of any medium, and audiences of any taste. As a collective, we are all LITC: the artists and the audience, the showers and the tellers, the listeners and the supporters.

This is our collective, and Long Island is our home.
Let's tell some stories, together.
