JUST WHO ARE AND WHAT IS NEARLY NAKED THEATRE?
Nearly Naked Theatre is a not-for-profit group of local artists: actors, writers, directors, designers and technicians, seeking a new voice in Valley theater, free of censorship and artistic stifling, who wish to produce thought-provoking and challenging theater! It’s not as easy as it sounds.

WHY IS THE THEATER ‘NEARLY NAKED?’
Not referring to the participants’ state of dress, Nearly Naked is theater that has been stripped down to its essentials. Free of conformity and political pressure, Nearly Naked presents theater that is honest by its simplicity. Lavish sets and costumes may be used, but are not required. When something is naked, it is exposed and presented without pretense, and that is the nature of our theater. The actors themselves are not naked... unless of course, that’s the nature of the show. We would be naked if we were doing Hair or Oh! Calcutta, but definitely not if we were doing South Pacific or Annie. (Nearly Naked Theatre has no intention of producing any of these plays in the near future; please do not buy your season ticket based on these titles).

HERE COMES THE ALL-IMPORTANT MISSION STATEMENT
(Please clear throat and read with emphasis)
The Highland Avenue Theater Society’s Nearly Naked Theatre is dedicated to the production and exploration of theater that is not confined by the boundaries of ignorance or by limits of imagination. Whether “naked with our instrument” on a bare stage or “costumed to the nines” on an obnoxiously over-produced set, Nearly Naked Theatre will strive to create theater that is challenging, entertaining and thought-provoking, while always allowing its artists and audiences the opportunity to grow and flourish artistically, intellectually and spiritually. This is the true nature of theater as it exists in all cultures, decades and genres. Nearly Naked Theatre draws its productions from any and all of these sources, and we define our theater by refusing to be defined. Our mission is to promote theater that, like all art, forwards the idea of one race, one earth, with one goal: humanity... and we may just entertain you in the process.
