Help The Vortex Thrive

with a tax-deductible gift of:


Our 41st Season has been an exciting one. We produced a new adaptation of Alice in Wonderland with Saturday morning performances for families. The Iceman Cometh and Blood Wedding offered exciting classical theatre with rave reviews. She Kills Monsters brought a new audience to our house and happily surprised many of our old friends. And we reprised Greater Tuna, playing for 6 weeks to sold-out houses. We raised the funds for and purchased new risers and chairs, made our parking lot brighter and safer, and produced the 4th season of Shakespeare on the Plaza.

2018 promises even more. We'll open with The Father, a play variously considered a dream or the experience of a person with dementia–and hold a benefit performance for the Alzheimer's Association. Next up is Mary Stuart, the story of the battle between Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I, which has played to critical acclaim around the world. In March, Paul Ford will direct Tennessee Williams' masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Every other year the AACT selects the best plays from hundreds submitted for their New Playfest. The Vortex is honored to be one of the 6 community theatres to produce one of those selections, Mynx and Savage, this April. In June, Shakespeare on the Plaza will present As You Like It and The Merry Wives of Windsor. The rest of 2018 holds The Fantasticks, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, 1984, Sense and Sensibility and A Tuna Christmas. So many wonderful opportunities for us to get together!

We can only make these productions happen with your support. No amount is too small. Please help us continue, dear friends. Your Tax-deductible donations make a huge difference in our being able to bring you the best plays with the best talent in Albuquerque. Thank you for your generosity in making the Vortex possible!
