Welcome to the 2015-2016 Season!

Three young cast members from our Academy of Creative Theatre production of Pirates of Penzance took time out from rehearsal this week to pose with our marquee. You can just tell they’re having a great time, can’t you? If you happen to stroll by the theatre on one of these hot July afternoons or evenings, pause for a minute by the door and you’ll be able to hear these talented young actors and actresses rehearsing the delightful patter songs of Gilbert & Sullivan, giggling and learning the choreography, and generally having a blast creating their own awesome version of this beloved operetta. But don’t let all the “fun” fool you. Director Shelagh Garren holds our young actors to a high degree of professionalism and you’ll be impressed by the high quality of all of our ACT productions. Pirates of Penzance, Jr. features 19 ACT students in the familiar roles of the Pirate King, Mabel, Frederick and, of course the Major General. There are just two more weeks of rehearsal before opening night on July 17th, so do yourself a favor and buy your tickets for this delightful musical today!

Recognize these lovely faces? Eight fabulous shows from the 2014-2015 Season are now gone, but not forgotten–not by a long shot! Our incredible 68th Season was one of the most successful in our history: over 100 performances SOLD-OUT and we averaged 93{efcf22502b1e74b0202af948281d54f129dde7dacd2c3f6ff4c98fe998904ac4} capacity across all shows! And YOU helped make it all possible. We hope you’ll join us for one last look at an amazing season of 25 shows and 225 performances at the Annual Open House & Volunteer Appreciation Party on Sunday, July 19 at 5 pm. We’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ supper, wine and beer, catching up with old and new friends, a video recap of the season’s highlights AND our annual Volunteer Awards! Please RSVP (just so we have enough BBQ on hand!) by emailing [email protected].

Happy 4th of July!
Wishing you all a wonderful Independence Day Weekend. Hope to see you here at the theatre soon!
