Past Productions

New Paradigm Theatre (NPT), is well-known for its inventive productions that are presented with multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-gendered casting.

Each summer The New Paradigm Theatre Company partners with another non-profit organization that reflects the theme of the summer production to raise money and awareness for issues and organizations surrounding the community. NPT Youth Board members learn about and volunteer for those nonprofits. This template of using the arts to shine a spotlight on worthy causes in a focused way is starting to be adopted by other nonprofits that we produce with, including the Norwalk Symphony and the NY City Children’s Theatre.

Footloose, 2021 – Kids Helping Kids was chosen as our nonprofit partner for this show. Its mission is to develop leadership skills among middle and high school age students through youth-led service projects. They empower students to have a proactive attitude toward change by taking their passion and turning it into action to benefit low-income children in the community. “Kids Helping Kids is so in alignment with the message provided by FOOTLOOSE, celebrating the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. Kids Helping Kids has been focused on the power of youth and their voice for the past 10 years.” says executive director and founder, Jennifer Kelly.  NPT youth board members volunteered with Kids Helping Kids youth and audience members to donate over 600 pairs of shoes to Souls4Souls during our production as well as other combined volunteer activities.

Bye Bye Birdie, 2019 – The American Legion Post 12/Veterans were chosen. As a patriotic Veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness, and with the resonating themes of military service and Americanism, it was a fitting partner as the musical is inspired by the phenomenon of singer Elvis Presley, one of America’s most significant icons in rock and roll history, as he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1957. The American Legion family includes the American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion; organizations comprised of descendants of Legion eligible Veterans. “We are honored and grateful to NPT for this opportunity and along with them we wish to thank all our Veterans for their service to this great nation.” NPT also featured a group of the Veterans onstage during one of the Bye Bye Birdie scenes.

West Side Story, 2018 – NPT and the Norwalk Symphony co-produced and were proud to partner with Building One Community, B1C. The Center for Immigrant Opportunity (B1C), is a nonprofit organization that educates, employs, empowers, and engages immigrants and the community. The themes presented in West Side Story resonated with their mission to support the most vulnerable. We hosted a Self Defense class that featured this non profit, the Norwalk PD and gave tips on self defense especially for young women. Visits to Channel 8, Channel 12 and print coverage were extensive.

Hunchback, 2018 – The Connecticut Burns Care Foundation was chosen to reflect the show’s famous song, “God Help the Outcasts” and the treatment of the Hunchback as it compared to how children with burns are often treated. Kathy Gerrity, the Executive director of the CT Burns Care Foundation led an information session for the youth in the show, helped to give the curtain speech, appeared on Channel 8 with NPT and benefitted from the extensive PR for the show.
