|American Theater Co|
American Theater Company is an ensemble of artists committed to producing new and classic American stories that ask the question: "What does it mean to be an American?"
We provide a truly intimate home for the community to experience meaningful stories. We foster a nurturing environment for artists to take risks and create essential work.
founded to affect the average Chicagoan
American Theater Company (ATC) was founded in July 1985 as American blacks Theatre, a company dedicated to exploring, nurturing, and developing theater that addressed and affected the real working-class people of Chicago. From 1986 to 1993, American blacks Theatre produced such critically acclaimed productions as The Hairy Ape; Rick Cleveland's Bad Moon; and Monsters and Monsters II, collections of commissioned monologues by Chicago playwrights including Douglas Post, Dwight Okita, David Mamet, and Paula Killen. The Hairy Ape was hailed by Richard Christiansen of the Chicago Tribune as one of the three best shows of the year.
a permanent home in a vital neighborhood
In August 1993, the company leased a warehouse in the primarily working-class neighborhood of Northcenter, and in an amazing 38 days, transformed it into an intimate 134-seat theater. From the beginning, the theater was a community center, playing host to Chamber of Commerce meetings and neighborhood events. From 1994 to 1997, the theater presented such critically acclaimed productions as On the Waterfront, the World Premiere of The Flight of the Phoenix (two Joseph Jefferson Citations), and Stalag 17 (five Jeff Citations).
professionalism and growth
In March 1997, Brian Russell became the company's first full-time, paid artistic director, and the theater changed its name to American Theater Company. Mr. Russell ushered in a new era of growth and professionalism, producing four-play subscription seasons, growing the budget from approximately $70,000 to $385,000, increasing the audience ten-fold, and growing the full-time staff. Among the highlights were The Threepenny Opera, American Buffalo (with Mike Nessbaum), and Endgame.
stability and American focus
In 2002, Mr. Russell stepped down and the Board of Directors hired Damon Kiely as the company’s second artistic director. His vision returned the company to its roots of producing only American stories, and revised the mission statement to ask our audience the question: "What does it mean to be an American?" Highlights include a hit revival of The Hairy Ape, Lisa Loomer’s Living Out (co-produced by Teatro Vista), and broke box office records with his re-imagining of Oklahoma! which also played at Theater on the Lake. Damon resigned at the end of the 2007 season to take a full time faculty position at DePaul University.
new leaders usher change and expansion
In November 2007, the Board of Directors hired PJ Paparelli as the company’s third artistic director and in August 2008, hired its first Executive Director, Michael Thomas Newberry. Newberry and Paparelli helmed the company’s most significant era of growth and transformation, expanding to a six-play season, doubling the staff, and growing the budget to just over $1M. Nationally recognized projects included the regional premiere of Speech & Debate (TimeOut Chicago’s top three production of 2008), Chicago premiere of The People’s Temple by members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, and an unprecedented repertory of African American and Caucasian productions of True West and Topdog/Underdog (first Caucasian cast) in collaboration with Congo Square Theatre Company. ATC was awarded the 2008 Princess Grace Award with a residency for director Jaime Castañeda and significantly increased its corporate and foundation support. The Chicago Tribune wrote, 'An exciting new era. Demonstrably, ATC is now on a whole new track' comparable to what you’d see at America’s leading progressive theaters.
In January 2008, ATC launched two comprehensive outreach initiatives, American Mosaic and The Chicago Chronicle. American Mosaic is a ninth grade residency in six Chicago Public Schools, focused on the literary and performance aspects of a play in our season. Over 600 students from Logan Square, the South Side, and North Center studied and performed scenes from True West and Topdog/Underdog on the set of the professional productions and attended a student matinee. The Chicago Chronicle combined eight professional playwrights with teenagers from Chase Elementary to create a documentary style play from interviews with community members in Logan Square.
In March of 2009, members of the Ensemble left the organization to reform American blacks Theatre. ATC recommitted to its mission of exploring a diverse and complex American identity the reflects our country today. In its first collaboration with About Face Theatre, Hedwig and the Angry Inch broke all previous box office records with two extensions, cultivating a rich audience of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
Season 25 celebrates the American Family with the Chicago Premiere of Yeast Nation (the triumph of life) the new musical from the Tony Award winning writers of Urinetown; the World Premiere of Welcome to Arroyo’s, and the Chicago Premiere of Lisa Loomer’s Distracted. In a historic commission from the Chicago Community Trust, ATC, Congo Square and the National Public Housing Musuem began development on a documentary style play that explores the history of public housing in Chicago.
Arden Gild Hall, 2126 The Highway, Arden, DE 19810
Information for New or Prospective Members
Ardensingers Chorus and Orchestra
Typically, the Ardensingers perform two shows per year, one in the Fall (generally, one weekend sometime between late October and early December), and one in the Spring (two weekends in late April / early May). The Spring show is one of the standard works of Gilbert & Sullivan, and casting is by formal audition (September / October). There's no set format for the Fall show, although it's often something G&S-related, but with less ambitious staging and costuming. Casting for the Fall show is by committee and, though we're still aiming for a high quality production, there is often an effort to provide solo / ensemble performing opportunities for capable singers that don't get cast in the Spring show.
The Ardensingers are actively seeking musically and theatrically inclined men and women, including students 16 and older, as leads and for the Chorus. Younger students may be considered, particularly if a parent is also involved in the production. Prospective Ardensingers Chorus members will be asked to audition by performing a short piece of his or her choosing. At the present time, we're accepting most singers that have previous choral experience.
Rehearsals are Tuesday and Friday evenings from 7:30 - 10PM, and good attendance is a prerequisite for continued participation. We take a break for refreshments about half-way through rehearsal. For insurance purposes, all stage performers are required to become members of the Arden Club (annual cost of $20, less for seniors and students). The Ardensingers is one of a number of "gilds" that belong to the Arden Club, which is responsible for maintenance and operations of the Gild Hall, our performing venue. The Ardensingers also take part in the Arden Fair every year on the Saturday before Labor Day (the Club's biggest fund raiser). The Ardensingers sponsor the Beer / Wine booth at the Fair, and we encourage all able-bodied members to help out at the booth, or in some other capacity at the Fair.
Vocal scores can be purchased at cost from the Ardensingers. Typically, we'll use the Schirmer edition. Contact John Trexler, as directed below, to reserve a copy.
There may occasionally be openings for the Ardensingers Orchestra, which takes part in the Spring show, and occasionally the Fall show. Rehearsals are on Saturday mornings from 9 - 11:30AM.
For additional information about joining the Chorus or Orchestra, or to be added to our auditions mailing list, please contact John Trexler at (484) 319-2350, or send an email@example.com.

We presented "Trial By Jury" first performed in London in 1875. As this is a one act operetta it is only about 35 minutes long and so we also staged a concert performance of selections from some of Gilbert and Sullivan's major works.

|Pantagleize Theatre Company|
Texas, Fort Worth
WHAT'S WITH THAT NAME... During the first World War, remnants of two armies, German and French, exchanged gunfire from atop two buildings overlooking a square in a small Belgian town. Just as the twelve o’clock whistle sounded, a dapper clerk emerged from the bank. Noticing the bullet-riddled atmosphere, he opened a huge umbrella, and then strolled confidently across the square. Both armies stopped firing and shared rare laughter. The clerk made it safely to the other side. One of the soldiers on that roof eventually became Belgium’s most celebrated playwright, Michel de Ghelderode. Years later, recalling the idealistic clerk, Ghelderode created his most memorable character, then named him, and the play that bears his name, Pantagleize. The Pantagleize Theatre Company is dedicated to nurturing understanding among world cultures and vows to produce plays of international character, to include cultures within our community generally excluded or belittled, and to provide opportunities for personal and artistic growth. We celebrate with joy all that makes us one.

StageRight Theater Company, PO Box 62, Bountiful, UT 84100
Our mission is to provide a quality theatrical experience which is vital in nurturing a healthy community.
Live theater is a personal conscience for our community. Theater reflects how we see ourselves as a society and compels review of our hopes, dreams, values, and interactions with each other.
Support of public participation in theater will always guide our artistic and business decisions. We are determined to bring commendable works of art to our stage, not for the sake of art alone, but for the emotional enrichment of all.
StageRight is committed to bringing out the best in everyone, as audience members, stage technicians, and performers. We seek to foster personal growth and further the artistic experience for the benefit of the individual. Everyone who takes pride in promoting an environment of creativity and artistic endeavor is welcome to join us.

|The J Players|
|The Masqueraders Theatre Club|
Mount San Jacinto College, San Jacinto Campus, 1499 N. State Street, San Jacinto, CA 92583
The Masqueraders Theatre Club was founded in the Spring semester of 2010 by six students. Their vision was to build a solid theatre community at MSJC thus allowing growth both on campus and off. How many students attend our college and don't even know that the theatre exists? How many people living in the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley have never seen one of our shows? These six students, through drive and determination, helped set the foundation of what we hope will be an ongoing ritual even after we graduate and move forward.

Over 100 years of community theatre.
The Rose Valley Chorus & Orchestra presented its first production, Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado, at the Artsman's Hall (now Hedgerow Theatre) in Rose Valley on November 21, 1907. This performance united the wealth of musical and dramatic talent resident in the arts and crafts colony of Rose Valley into a group that is still vibrant and successful 105 years (and over 160 shows) later! Today we perform in the beautiful and modern theater at Strath Haven Middle School in Wallingford.
Today the Rose Valley Chorus & Orchestra draws its membership from the entire Delaware Valley, a result of its reputation for presenting professional-quality theatrical productions. The voices of the principals and chorus, with the musicianship of the full 35-piece orchestra, rank among the best of the area's many community musical theater groups.
Rose Valley Chorus & Orchestra now has two major theatrical productions each season (Fall and Spring) which includes Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, Broadway musicals, and other assorted operettas. Stage participation as a principal or chorus member is determined by audition. Audition dates are announced in Stage, local papers, and our Website.
In 1997 Rose Valley Chorus & Orchestra purchased the old Middletown Firehouse in Media. Located at 184 Bortondale Road, it serves as our set contruction site and houses our extensive costume and props collection.
We are always looking for new members to participate either on stage, in the orchestra or behind the scenes as members of our production staff. To schedule an audition, or volunteer, please e-mail us for more information or call us at 610-565-5010.
