The Nevada Conservatory Theatre plays an important role in the student experience at UNLV. The NCT is the professional production arm of the department. What makes us distinct is the way in which we feature professional actors, designers, and directors working alongside advanced graduate and undergraduate students recruited from around the country. These professionals help to train and mentor our students by offering real world insight on theater. They also serve as our students' first professional contacts.

The NCT is one of Las Vegas' premiere not-for-profit arts organizations. We attract nearly 18,500 patrons a season and have more than 2,000 season subscribers. We produce five main season shows and three second season shows.

Under the leadership of Executive Director, Brackley Frayer, and a faculty of outstanding professionals, we bring to our city some of the world's finest plays. We believe in giving new and recent plays a chance on our stage.
