Hire HOBT for a residency!

HOBT customizes every residency to complement and enhance your curriculum objectives. Our highly skilled artist / instructors will work with you and your students to create a group project from start to finish.

Please donate to support MayDay!

In 1975, HOBT's first MayDay was a gift to the community that was shared by just a few hundred neighbors. Last year, HOBT shared that gift with a record-setting 55,000 people.

The 2018 budget for this exuberant celebration is just over $200,000. We need your help to fill a $38,000 gap to ensure MayDay remains healthy and resilient. Your gift supporting MayDay is a gift to your community.

Meet Our Associate Artists: we are fortunate to work with a circle of radiant Associate Artists who both inspire and carry out the many programs and projects of our theatre. Learn More...
