About ATCo

Aside Theatre

"Aside" : A theatrical device used to allow a character in a play the chance to speak directly with the audience, breaking down the "fourth wall" and delivering their truth.  

Aside Theatre Founder and Producing Artistic Director Nathaniel Burns provides Theatre and film professionals (playwrights, screenwriters, actors, directors, producers, and more) with an opportunity to perform their otherwise "off topic" or passion projects aside from their own company's mission or season. A moxie, motley crew of varied perspectives and talents, Aside Theatre’s intention is to surprise and delight you with new paradigms and challenging works for both stage and screen.
