Posted by admin on Wednesday, April 12 @ 18:24:23 MST (77 reads)

Fort Atkinson Community Theatre has made a donation of twenty-four new lighting fixtures with a value of $7,745.48 to the Fort Atkinson High School Auditorium. For years, community members and students alike have struggled to work in the space, wrestling with inoperable equipment. 


"We are all very excited to be able to help the school district and the community with this donation.  It fills what has been identified as a very strong need in the auditorium by all of the lighting designers that have worked in the space," says FACT President, Nick Dingman.  "Fort Atkinson has been very good to us in supporting our productions, and we're happy to find additional ways to help give back to the community.  The board is very excited to be able to help enhance all of the wonderful programming that takes place on the busy auditorium stage."

FACT is an organization devoted to charitable, literary, and educational purposes, specifically focused upon encouraging the performance and appreciation of the theater arts. FACT hopes that with this donation, technicians can feel confident bringing their art to our community.

FACT is excited to announce the performances for its upcoming production of "We the People - The Musical." This annual Youth FACT production will be presented April 22nd at 7:00pm and 23rd at 2:00pm, at the Fort Atkinson High School Auditorium.

This Patriotic tableau begins as a committee discusses putting on a patriotic show for their town. Just what does America mean to them? One person pulls out the preamble to the constitution, and they decide to use it as a framework for their show. Through a series of sketches and songs organized phrase by phrase from the preamble. They show not only how the constitution applies to our past, but also to our present and future. 

This Musical will serve as a fine reminder that the remarkable words written by out forefathers many years ago are still a living do[Censored]ent, part of our lives each and every day!

Auditions - Once Upon a Mattress

Posted by FACT-PR on Tuesday, April 04 @ 21:29:42 MST (263 reads)

Anonymous writes "In this musical version of The Princess and the Pea, Princess Winnifred is an awkward, brash girl from a swamp competing for the hand of Prince Dauntless the Drab, whose domineering mother Queen Aggravain has declared he must marry a "true" princess before anyone else in the kingdom can marry.

Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, some hilarious and boisterous, others romantic and melodic, this whimsical twist on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some uproarious shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at this fable by Hans Christian Andersen the same way again. Fort Atkinson Community Theatre will proudly present Once Upon A Mattress in July 2017.

Audition Dates:
Sunday April 30 from 1:00-4:00
Monday May 1 from 6:30-8:30

Those auditioning will be asked to sing a show tune and do a cold reading from the script. Anyone entering high school in Fall 2017 and up is welcome to audition. 

Questions? Please contact show director Jason Teeter at jason.teeter@fortfact.org"

"Closer Than Ever," will be presented by FACT on May 5th and 6th at 7:00pm. Performances will be held at the Fort Atkinson High School Auditorium.

A loo into the private song vault of Richard Maltby, JR. and David Shire, the musical review "Closer Than Ever" is filled to the brim with the brilliance for which these musical theatre giants are known.

"Closer Than Ever," is a nonstop exploration of everyday struggles in the 'modern world.' Topics Ranging from unrequited adoration....to aging.....to muzak are tackled with resounding sincerity and precisely placed hilarity. Each song is a unique story told by a new character taking audiences not only into the songbook of Mr. Maltby and Mr. Shire, but into the minds of the individuals facing these completely relatable challenges.
