A Letter to Our Patrons

Dear patrons of ACT 1 Theatre!

Even if you have been unable to attend a recent show, I am sure you have heard of our impending displacement from the Liberty for next season. We are still pursuing several options and as soon as we have made a decision for next season we will share it with you!

In the meantime I wanted to share some positive things that have happened at ACT 1 recently. We received a John Morgan Foundation Grant (for the second year) of $5000 which we will be putting toward a new Clear-Com system. (We upgraded our lighting system with the grant from last year.) This will allow us to communicate clearly from back stage to increase the quality of our performances!

We also were the recipients of a $2000 grant from School’s Out Washington/Greater Tacoma Community Foundation which is covering our youth classes so they are free to all participants. They also submitted our theater company and youth programming to be a part of a UW study on emotional learning. When we complete this we will have a certification which should increase our capability for more grants and alternative funding!

We just closed Charlotte’s Web and enjoyed wonderful audiences. We worked with lots of new youth and hope to keep them working with us in the future!

We have landed a new volunteer coordinator!

We have fabulous house managers for this season who you are sure to meet—or may have already: Abel and Jessica Kellam!

We are currently in rehearsal for Vanya,Sonya,Masha and Spike with a gifted cast: Leigh Duncan, Debbie  Kilgren, Curt Beecham, Mataja Davidson, Anthony Gaynes, and Stephanie Carlson.

Auditions for our closing show this season, Urinetown the musical, are in April. (I am happy we chose this fabulous musical for this season because the 5th Ave is doing it in their season next year!)

Thank you for all the ways you support ACT 1 Theatre.

See ya at the theater.
