ATC is a 501(c)3 organization formed for the community of Huntsville to foster educational opportunities for children of all ages in the performing arts, whether on or off the stage. Through providing opportunities for our students to be involved in the arts, our organization brings people together to learn all the different aspects of theatre from costuming and set design to singing and dancing.

ATC was formed in November 2021 and since that time has served over 350 youth. The annual operating expenses of running a theatre on average range from $25,000 – $30,000 per year. A significant percentage to pay for these expenses comes from ticket sales and class tuition; however, ATC relies heavily on fundraisers and the support of the community to fund the balance of annual expenses.

Estimated ATC Expenses 2022:

Show Rights/Licensing$6,000
Set Materials$4,000
Theatre Administration (printing, Playbills, etc)$3,000
Liability Insurance$2,500

If you’ve made it this far down the page, perhaps you would consider a donation or a sponsorship with Around the Curtain Children’s Theatre to help with keeping the arts from becoming a luxury for the Huntsville households. Donations and Sponsorships are Tax Deductible. Sponsorship information may be found here, and any and all questions are welcomed. Thank you for helping launch a legacy of the arts in Huntsville!

“ATC has changed my whole life. Before we got involved, I had never sung in front of people before and never acted on stage. All that has changed and it’s something I’m actually good at. I love making new friends and learning all the different things about theatre!”
