ATC is dedicated to the creation of exceptional and transformative theatrical productions that are performed and supported by the children of North Alabama, on stage and off.
We present a diverse season each year with productions cast towards the different age groups. Students work behind the scenes, learning tech, costuming, backstage, props, sets, and more.
Regular classes in all the areas of the arts follow the school semester. Many of these classes cater to the homeschool community with regards to scheduling, and after school hours are focused on production prop, with Behind the Scenes lessons and Rehearsals.
Workshops and Camps
Regular workshops are offered on feature topics, including special art projects, Improv, Acting, Auditioning How-Tos, and more. We host camps over various school breaks and throughout the summer.
7th – 12th graders work together to form a community based on trust and friendship as they discover all the ins and outs of putting together a successful production. The Academy has regular instruction sessions as well as meeting throughout the year as these students work directly with the leaders of each show.
ATC contracts with local schools to provide drama programs. These afterschool opportunities center on providing an introduction into all the arts have to offer for all students.
Larger scale productions offer education outreach and field trip performances. These shows are scheduled prior to the opening night of the production and are at discounted ticket prices to invite in the community.
ATC students and classes regularly get involved in the community with participation in community events and performances.
ATC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and as such runs on the extensive fundraising efforts by our team. Regular events are scheduled throughout the year, such as the Theatre Turkey Trot, Daddy/Daughter Dance, Belk Charity Sale, and more. The hard work and dedication of these volunteers makes keeping the arts an affordable option for the children of Huntsville as a viable mission!
7th – 12th graders work together to form a team of leaders that work directly with the Production Team of the production. Students learn and are intricately involved in the decision making, preparing them to run all areas of the production from Tech to Stage Manager come Show Time.
We provide opportunities for teens to volunteer as part of our regular classes and workshops, as well as within the productions. Our teen volunteer programs provides a safe and engaging environment that focusses on teaching students important life skills as they learn leadership skills, gain professional experience, problem solve, are given creative opportunities, and socialize in a structured and safe environment.
