How it all started

Humbug! Theater Company was created by actor and teaching artist Nia Smith, and playwright Emma Watkins as a way to offer creative community and theater-making opportunities to kids and teens during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Nia and Emma met at McCarter Theatre Center in New Jersey, where they worked to bring world-class theater productions to the stage.  Among these shows was a production of A Christmas Carol, with its unforgettable refrain of “Bah, Humbug!”, which inspired their company name.  In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge says “Humbug!” to a number of things - including togetherness, community, and celebration.  It is exactly this sort of joyful “Humbug!” that they hope to bring to their students.
