Founded by actors whose common goal is to provide theatrical performances of quality and substance. Through our dedication to this goal we produce plays that range from drama to comedy, from farce to fantasy, classic to contemporary and everything in-between. Using known and unknown playwrights we attempt to shed light on less common works, which would not be seen if not for our existence. Our hope is to present our audience with provocative, moving and above all, entertaining theatre.
To provide: 1. Cutting edge, dramatic and comedic semi-professional theatre for Binghamton, New York, and the immediate community.
2. To provide the opportunity for local artists to work with professional artists.
3. To work with the immediate community to contribute to the education of aspiring artists.
4. To produce art that fills a particular niche in the immediate community that is not addressed in an ongoing manner.
KNOW Theatre was created in 1993. It was incorporated as a Not-for profit in March 2006. Throughout the years KNOW Theatre presented award-winning and controversial plays in many churches and halls throughout Binghamton.
In July of 2006, KNOW Theatre rented space in the former Central Firehouse of Binghamton, New York – now known as the Binghamton City Stage, Home of KNOW Theatre. Working with the owner, the space was converted into a black-box (New York City Off-Broadway type house). The theater seats up to 86 individuals with permanent theater-conference room seats installed on raised platforms for 76. It is the only theater of its type in downtown Binghamton, NY.
