ACCT Changes for 2017-18 Season

Atomic City Children's Theater (ACCT), Los Alamos Public Schools' award winning after-school musical theater program announced their events and shows for the 2017-18 season.

Changes for the 2017-18 Season

JATGP"There will be several changes for our upcoming season," Savage noted. "Due to the construction in Smith Auditorium, it won't be possible for us to present a show in November. We can't commit to starting a show without a venue to perform in."

"We have decided to combine our 5th / 6th grade and Middle School casts for our February show. We will be presenting Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach Jr."

Auditions for Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach Jr. are tentatively scheduled for November 18th with rehearsals beginning November 28th. Public performances of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach Jr. are scheduled for February 16 & 17, 2018 at Smith Auditorium.

We are still hoping to present our 3rd/4th grade show in the spring, but this is funding dependent. Once it looks like we'll have enough funds, we will decide on the show to present.

Leadership Changes

ACCT's former Music Director Kelsey Nelson has decided to take a break from ACCT. Annemarie Brown, 3rd grade teacher at Barranca Mesa Elementary School has bravely offered to step in as Savage's co-director. We will begin looking for a music director as we get closer to beginning rehearsals.

Funding Changes

ACCT's funding model will also change for next year with ACCT becoming a self-funded performing group rather than rely on the FAEA Arts Grant for their funding.

ACCT will be organizing several fundraising events to fund next year's shows and will try to host at least one fundraising event every month to raise the money needed to present the quality musicals Los Alamos families have come to love.

The 2017-18 season marks ACCT's 10th year serving Los Alamos area families.
