The Vortex Theatre is dedicated to classic, contemporary, and cutting-edge stage performances. More than just a gathering place for audiences and actors, it has become a focal point for local and regional playwrights, directors, stagehands, production teams, and anyone in the Albuquerque community with an interest in theatrical arts.
This venue offers an array of works, from local and national premieres to new interpretations of classic plays. It also stages readings of new scripts, giving up and coming writers an opportunity to have their work performed in front of live audiences, while the general public may attend these public readings free of charge.
The Vortex Theatre issues an electronic newsletter every two to four weeks. It provides information on upcoming shows, staged readings, auditions, volunteer opportunities, classes, workshops, fundraisers, and other events.
Performances are typically held at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 6pm on Sundays. Ticket seekers are advised to contact the box office directly for schedules, seating and pricing information.
The Vortex Theatre is located across from the UNM campus at 2004? Central Avenue SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106. The box office door opens onto Buena Vista Drive, three blocks to the east of University Boulevard. All parking is on the street.
