I thought you were Jasper Community Arts? What is the Next Act? What is the difference between your organizations?
Actors Community Theatre is a non-profit organization of people from the community who create musicals, plays, and other theatrical endeavors. We do not own any physical space to perform in.
Jasper Community Arts is a department of the City of Jasper. They operate the Jasper Arts Center and the galleries, workshops, and black box theatre in the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center. We are considered an in-house organization of Jasper Community Arts as we utilize their spaces on a regular basis.
The Next Act is an organization that was created to obtain and renovate the Astra Theatre. We are not affiliated with them in any way with the exception that we might rent their facility if it fits our needs.
I would love to be involved, but I don't want to be on stage. Now what?
E-mail us! Right now! WE NEED YOU! We need people to serve as assistant stage managers, light and sound techs, and set builders! Please! It takes a lot of energy to put on a show. No prior experience needed – if you have an interest and the time, please reach out!
Is there a part for me?
Actors Community Theatre strives to produce shows that feature people from all sorts of backgrounds. We want you to be involved and attempt to create an environment that allows you to grow and learn. We also rely on the expertise of more experienced folks. If you have lots of experience, we would love for you to share your knowledge and help those who are a little more novice.
I can't make it to the audition dates. Can I submit a video audition?
The directors would prefer to see you in person, but they understand that sometimes that isn’t possible. Actors Community Theatre strives to make theatre accessible to you. If you need accommodation outside of the regular auditions, please let us know.
When are auditions for your shows?
Auditions happen roughly two to three months before showtime. Specific audition information is released via our Facebook page and here on our website as soon as we gather all of the pertinent information.
