Mission & History


Horizon Theatre Company’s mission is to connect people, inspire hope, and promote positive change through the stories of our times.

About Us & Our History

Sophisticated and funky, casual and friendly, Horizon is Atlanta’s home for the best in contemporary theatre – smart, entertaining, fun and provocativeOutstanding plays from around the world, never before seen in Atlanta. Award-winning professional actors, directors and designers. Stories that are relevant to your life…provocative and fresh stories of positive change — all up close and personal in our intimate Inman Park/Little Five Points home.  Our mission is to connect people, inspire hope, and promote positive change through contemporary theatre and the stories of our times.

Since 1983, Horizon has produced over 190 professional contemporary plays and reaches over 20,000 patrons every year with an adventurous mix of nationally and internationally acclaimed plays and our own Atlanta stories. Horizon’s main home is an intimate 160-seat theatre located between Inman Park and the eclectic Little Five Points business and arts district.

We annually offer a mainstage season of six to eight contemporary plays for diverse Atlanta audiences and a Family series for younger audiences. We also create new plays from, for, and about Atlanta today through our annual New South Play Festival and Black Women Speak programs. We develop new audiences and artists through our education programs: the New South Young Playwrights Contest and Festival, Horizon In-School Playwriting Workshops, the Horizon Apprentice Company (early career professionals), the Intern Program (for college students) and the high school theatre program at The New School.
