About Us

Our Mission

To provide a community-based, dramatic performing arts organization for the purpose of presenting quality family entertainment and creating opportunities for children and adults to develop talents in all aspects of theatre arts.


Our Own Productions is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation founded in 2006 and we presented our first production, the musical Pirates of Penzance, in 2007.  We also strive to give back to the community whenever possible.  We presented a production of The Shadow Box with partial proceeds going to Community Hospice and we used both Saturday matinee performances of Jonathan Larson’s RENT as a fundraiser for The Damien Center.  We will continue to assist other organizations in the Capital District whenever possible.
