Who are we?
Get to know us and join us!
Brand New Theatre is an undergraduate, student-run organization at the University of Southern California.
BNT was originally founded in 1996, making it the oldest theatre group on campus. The "Brand New" comes from the new, original plays that are produced each season, showcasing talented students who collaborate through performance, direction and production. Throughout our history, we have been the sole platform for undergraduate playwriting at USC. We pride ourselves in presenting our audiences with a unique variety of content, style and genre. You name it, we’ve done it- comedy, drama, absurdism, horror, musical, even murder mystery! Nothing is beyond our scope, which is what makes us unlike any other theatre group on campus.
