New Bern Civic Theatre is proud to be an important part of the New Bern Community for over 40 years. Performing hundreds of shows for audiences both young and young at heart, New Bern Civic Theatre has always been about more than just entertainment.
To enrich, empower, include, educate, and entertain.
A former Marine, Angelina discovered New Bern Civic Theatre in 2006 performing in Neil Simon’s Rumors. Exhilarated by the experience, she grasped every chance to learn as much about theatre as she could from set painting to directing and quickly advanced to NBCT Administrative Assistant in 2007.
In 2009, she was promoted to NBCT Executive Director. Under Angelina’s direction, the volunteers have created professional quality productions and an environment that feels like home. Together with the Board of Directors and patrons, the theatre has increased ticket sales by 40%, new lighting and sounds were installed, new balcony seats were added in 2012 and the downstairs seats were replaced in 2014. Bringing Angelina’s vision to NBCT, the mission statement was revamped in 2012 – “To enrich, empower, include, educate, and entertain.”
