The NAACP Theatre Awards is an award presented annually by the Beverly Hills-Hollywood branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to honor outstanding people of color in theatre.

Similar to other awards, the Theatre Awards are voted on by members of the NAACP. There are also honorary awards, including the President's Award, the Trailblazer Award, the Spirit Award, the Community Service Award and The Lifetime Achievement Award.

The awards were first presented in 1991. The ceremonies usually take place in the Los Angeles area sometime after the NAACP Image Awards.
