Teaneck New Theatre (TNT) was founded in 1986 and has a rich history of productions in the Northern New Jersey region.  Live Performances are presented at the beautiful Hackensack Performing Arts Center (HACPAC).

TNT has always prided itself on its high-quality productions. Our mission is to give actors, directors and production staff an opportunity to hone their craft by working on outstanding plays. Consequently, TNT continues to tackle a diverse range of works. This includes presentations of less well-known plays as well as originals by local and not-so-local playwrights.

Details may have changed over the more than 35 years of productions, but the overall goal of TNT actors, directors and backstage staff remains the same: to present accomplished productions so that audiences will be glad they came...and will want to return.
