This week the Gettysburg Community Theater will be hosting the annual American Association of Community Theater conference and AACTFest.
The meetings and shows will occur in the Gettysburg Majestic Theater and in the Gettysburg Community Theatre.
The goal of the association is to enable community theatres across the country to become the cornerstones of the creative life of their communities—to provide quality entertainment, intellectual stimulation, challenge, and opportunity, and to be worthy contributors to an improved quality of life for the communities they serve.
Community theatres involve more participants, present more performances of more productions, and play to more people than any performing art in the country. They are critical to the cultural life of our communities.
Part of the conference is a series of shows that are open to the public.
In this podcast I talk with Chad-Alan Carr, the Founding Artistic and Executive Director of the Gettysburg Community Theatre, and the host of the conference.
A transcription of the podcast is available here.
