2015 - Director's Notes...

Taken from the alt newsletter, "CURTAIN CALL"

This edition of Director’s Notes will be more brief than usual due to the large quantity of other important news in this issue of Curtain Call. We are nearing the end of 2015 and the midpoint of our season. We have already produced very good and highly successful productions of Mothers and Sons, The Addams Family, Ramona Quimby, and The Mercy Seat. Coming up soon will be hilarious productions of Nunsense and The Foreigner as well as the ALT Academy’s much anticipated production of Godspell.

You will also note our two special Holiday events. We are pleased to present The Flying J Wranglers for their 10th annual appearance at ALT. Their performance will be Tuesday, December 15 at the ALT Mainstage. For those who like a little more “bite” with their holiday fare, we are extremely pleased to be presenting Jeff Jarnagin, reprising his role as the grumpy elf, Crumpet, in The Santaland Diaries. This great event will run December 17-19 at the ALT Adventure Space.

There has been a lot of talk about “warriors” this season. I appreciate all of our ALT warriors so much. I recently looked through an ALT program that commemorated the opening of ALT’s Mainstage building in 1955. It is very interesting to remember that since its birth in 1927 ALT has weathered a great depression, drought and a World War. In a tribute written about Oma Link Rowley and Eloise Gibson, it was noted that they painted scenery for the opera and local school productions to raise money to keep ALT alive. There is even an account of these two ladies going out and personally selling tickets to an upcoming show so that they could buy paint to finish a set. Talk about Warriors! We are so blessed to be in an organization with such a rich history that has been made thanks to so many “warriors” through the years. We owe much to our predecessors. We enjoy the shade of trees planted long ago.........

We have many fantastic shows yet to produce this season. I hope you will plan to support each of them with your attendance.

I look forward to seeing you at the theatre(s).

Allen Shankles
Managing/Artistic Director
