The Ames Community Theater (ACTORS) is getting ready to launch Season 62. ACTORS members are inviting the public to join them for a party on April 21 at 7 p.m. for the announcement of their new season.
“Season 62 is sure to delight the audiences,” said Stan Rabe, a long-time member of ACTORS.
The new season has the theme “Dimensions of Comedy,” following Season 61’s theme, “Theater for a New Millennium.”
“The new season includes five very different comedies,” Rabe said. “Play selection started last September, and the Play Selection Committee read stacks of plays. Each play was evaluated for the quality of the literature, the ability of ACTORS to put the show up and the audience appeal.
“Consequently, this committee met weekly until the shows were selected, licenses to do the shows had been acquired, directors were selected, and initial promotional materials had been prepared.”
Attendees at the announcement party will have a chance to buy season tickets and to join ACTORS Bravo, which supports the group and has five different levels of membership participation available.
The season announce party is being held at ACTORS Studio, 120 Abraham Dr., and will be catered by Salt and Pretzel.
“To add to the fun, there are door prizes from Deery Brothers of Ames, Cooks Emporium, Valor & Violet and ACTORS,” Rabe said. The Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau is a sponsor of the event.
ACTORS is a nonprofit, all-volunteer community theater.
“Community members are invited to join in on the fun,” Rabe said. “As a cast or crew member, you will meet new friends, learn a skill. and contribute to the community.” If you are interested in getting involved, contact ACTORS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
