ART has issued a cast call for actors for the new spring production, “That’s Life.” Auditions are Friday, April 17th at the St. Stephens Church in Beaumont, California, at 6 p.m. Audition materials for 2 women and 2 men will be supplied.
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 a special nature.
ACCT chose Dr. Switzer for this award for her founding of A Repertory Theatre (ART) with a mission statement that all ART play productions will be done as fundraisers for charities and other worthwhile causes. ACCT notes that this mission has been followed throughout the group’s history. A published, award-winning author, Dr. Switzer directs and often writes the plays. These plays are produced through cooperation with Highland Springs Resort and have become a feature of the Inland Empire for using theatre to benefit society.
ACCT provides networking, resources, and support to suit the needs of those involved in community theatre. ACCT represents the interests of more than 7,000 theatres across the United States and its territories, as well as theatre companies with the armed services overseas.
