A Repertory Theatre Artistic Director (ART), Dr. Mary Kay Switzer has been honored with the “Special Recognition Award.” This ACCT Award is presented to persons or organizations whose contributions to community theatre are far reaching and of special nature.
ACCT chose Dr. Switzer for this award for her founding of ART with a mission statement that all ART play productions will be done as fundraisers for charities and other worthwhile cause. ACCT notes that this mssion has been followed throughout the group’s ten year history. A published, award-winning author, Dr. Switzer directs and often writes the plays. These plays are produced through the support and cooperation of the Highland Springs Resort. ART’s productions have become a feature of the Inland Empire for using theatre to benefit society.
