The Golden Gear is a very special award that the NH Theatre Factory presents to members of the NHTF family to recognize outstanding support of the company. In 2013, The Golden Gear was created to honor the contributions of the dedicated staff of NHTF's inaugural production, Ghost Hunting. It continues to honor individuals who show exceptional dedication to the NH Theatre Factory.
"When we first developed NHTF's logo, we came up with the idea of three gears, each representing a branch of operation: The Main Stage, the Education Program, and New Works Development. The gears fit together, working in tandem in order to make the machine run properly. That's what the logo represents, and so does the Golden Gear. It represents our acknowledgment of individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the Factory runs properly."
