About Street Theatre Company
STREET THEATRE COMPANY was founded in 2006 by Cathy Street here in Nashville. Since then, STC has become a major theater in Nashville reliably bringing quality productions to the community. With a rogue sensibility and a lean and professional work ethic, we strive to bring interesting and challenging works to the stage while employing some of the finest artists, actors, singers, dancers, technicians, musicians, and craftspeople in the city.
Past shows include STC hits such as Avenue Q, Spamalot, Hairspray, Violet, Passing Strange, Spring Awakening, Miss Saigon, Batboy. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Caroline or Change, In the Heights, Assassins and Urinetown along with scores of others.
At the beginning of 2016, Cathy Street stepped down and Jason Tucker came in as the new executive artistic director. Jason is striving to maintain and further Cathy’s commitment to artists and quality, affordable theater.
With a history of plaudits, great reviews, and regional recognition, Street Theatre Company has placed itself among the vanguard of Nashville theaters.
As part of our mission, STC created ClassAct Dramatics: a place where the youth of Nashville can work, study, play, and create. ClassAct runs a number of educational and performance camps and it produces two full-scale productions per year. In 2016, ClassAct Dramatics produced the Nashville premiere of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s School of Rock!
As always, STC remains committed to professionalism, diversity, accessibility, and inclusivity. We’re a registered 501(c)(3) with the US federal government. As such, we rely on community donations and sponsorships in order to keep our ticket prices low and our seats affordable.

Finding a Home
STC continues it's concerted effort to find a permanent home. Over the past couple of years, we've done performances at the Looby Theater, 4th Story Theater, Bailey Middle School, and Holy Trinity Community Church. We're working hard to find the perfect space to help us create and maintain quality theater for years to come. To that end, last year STC raised over $16,000 in its incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign! We're currently in preliminary negotiations with a a few possible future venues.
