Congratulations to Ashley Herman Griffin and Sally Hudson of Headlands Management as they begin their third season at Sonoma Horse Park. This forty acres site along the Petaluma River will be home to 7 hunter and jumper events this year.

In 1947, they were incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the title of Novato Community, Inc.–better known as the Novato Community Players! In 2004 they changed their name to Novato Theater Company.” In 2006 they finished construction of their new theater, the Novato Theater Company Playhouse.

Today, the NTC draws casts and audiences from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, who enjoy their our quality productions. You can contact Novato Theater Company at http://novatotheatercompany.org
