I began volunteering at The Vortex after being wowed by their summer Shakespeare Festival. Fabulous performances, especially John Hardman as a helmet-thwacking policeman. They produce a wide variety of pieces, from classics to locally-written, which gives me a new appreciation for theatre and exposes me to works I'd never see otherwise.

All-in-all, The Vortex is a vital part of the Albuquerque arts and theatre scene. We're lucky to have it.

The Vortex Theatre is awesome. They put on first rate productions from the classics to contemporary. They support new and local playwrites. Provide great learning ground for interns. Given that Central New Mexico Community College does not have a theatre, classes are held at the Vortex. This enhances the theatre classes offered at CNM allows for technical classes where the students learn hands on in an actual theatrical shop. it is a great venue to experience the joy of live theatre

The Vortex has a very special place in my heart as this was the first theatre that I performed in. The relationship that the Vortex has with Central NM Community College is wonderful and gives new actors a place to hone their craft in both the classics and new pieces. They encourage writers throughout NM as well as the country to have their pieces performed for the first time and gives the audience the opportunity to be the judge during their 10 minute play festival. The theatre is small and cozy allowing the audience to become almost a character within the play. Very unique experiences are to be had for both the audience and performers.

The Vortex Theatre consistently puts on great shows. It's a wonderful place to get involved in community theater--after a small amount of stage experience in high school, working at the Vortex always feels like The Big Time to me. I'm awed by the sets, props, costumes, tech, direction, and stage management in every show, not to mention the exemplary actors with whom I've had the good fortune to work.

An inclusive, risk-taking, collaboration of performing artists, designers and technicians, who put on some of the best theatre in the area.

The Vortex has always been a great place to perform and attend live performances. As a "backstage kid" when I am at the Vortex it is like coming home.

Quality community theater! Terrific casts and crews. A wonderful variety of presentations. All conveniently located near the University of New Mexico in the cultural hub of the Duke City.
