ACCT News:
 
Atomic City Children’s Theater (ACCT), Los Alamos Public Schools’ award winning after-school musical theater program announced tryouts and shows for the 2017-18 season.
 
2017-18 Season
 
Program directors Daren Savage and Annemarie Brown said: “We plan to combine our 5th & 6th grade and Middle School casts for the February show Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach Jr.”
 
Auditions for James and the Giant Peach are tentatively scheduled for Nov. 18 with rehearsals beginning Nov. 28. Public performances of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach Jr. are scheduled for Feb. 16 & 17, 2018 at Smith Auditorium.
 
“Changes for our upcoming season are partially due to the construction in Smith Auditorium,” Savage said. "We are working to present our 3rd & 4th grade show in the spring, funding dependent."
 
Leadership Changes
 
Annemarie Brown, 3rd grade teacher at Barranca Mesa Elementary School has bravely offered to step in as ACCT’s co-director for this season. Brown said, “ACCT provides many learning opportunities for our students. It still amazes me how much my daughter's and my other students' self-confidence has grown as a result of participating in ACCT's shows.”
 
Brown continued, “ACCT students also develop friendships with cast members from other elementary schools that make the transition to middle school much easier. This program means a lot to our students.”
 
Funding
 
ACCT will be a self-funded performing group. LAPS administration has pledged their support of ACCT’s program through facility use for auditions, rehearsals, performances, and fundraisers.
 
ACCT will be organizing at least one fundraising event every month to raise the money needed to present the quality musicals Los Alamos families have come to love.
 
If interested in donating your time by helping with our fundraising activity, or by making a monetary donation, contact Daren Savage: d.savage@laschools.net or Annemarie Brown: an.brown@laschools.net.
 
The 2017-18 season marks ACCT's 10th year serving Los Alamos area families. For more audition information, visit the ACCT website at: www.AtomicCityChildrensTheater.com
