NoNAC presents several live theater performances a year, ranging from comedy to dinner theater. Included are Chatauqua evenings with lectures and interviews with famous people portrayed by professional actors, musicals, dramas and adventure plays, and mystery dinner theater presentations. The performers and production crew are all drawn from our local talent and are amazingly entertaining. Most of the performances are staged at the Martin Hotel, a charming hotel/dining room/bar which has been listed on the National Historical Register.
