About Judson Theatre Company

JTC Stars Sandhills FB Cover 2015

Judson Theatre Company is Moore County’s only professional theatre. We bring stars from Broadway and Hollywood to the Sandhills area to create engaging, entertaining and inspiring professional theatre of a national caliber and deliver it to our audience at a fraction of the price of a ticket to a Broadway show or tour. Our productions rehearse and perform in Pinehurst and are a unique addition to the cultural landscape of our community and the state of North Carolina.
