ATTIC CHAMBER THEATRE WELCOMES OUR 2018 SEASON PARTNER COMMUNITY FIRST CREDIT UNION!!

            

Message from the President:                 

Storytelling is essential to the human experience and has existed since humans developed the power of speech.  Oral stories passed from one generation to the next and storytellers were regarded as healers, leaders, spiritual guides, and entertainers. Storytelling included songs, poetry, chants and dance,which are at the heart of the theatrical tradition. Attic Chamber Theatre is all about telling great stories and creating excellent theatre through our mission of live performance, education and outreach. 

As we look toward our 68th season of sharing award-winning plays, meeting new challenges, and exploring new artistic possibilities, we need your financial support to keep our journey moving forward.  Since ticket revenue covers only half of our annual expenses, your gift is essential. Your donation helps to cover:

  • ·         The $23,000 in rent we pay to UW-Fox Valley to use their beautiful facilities.
  • ·         The $10,000 we need to cover the Expense of our intern program
  • ·         The $10,000 we need to build sets, find props and costumes,
  • ·         The $3000 we need to cover royalty, script and musical rental fee
  •           The $15,000 we need to cover stipends and expenses of our professionals who help us to create the quality theatre that we demand, and you expect.
  • ·         The $20.000 we need for administrative expenses

The 2018 Summer season shows are all cast. We had a great turn out for auditions, lots of new people and some of Attic’s favorites are busy rehearsing and learning their lines and songs. The designers and technical interns will be arriving in late May and will be building the sets, creating the costumes, collecting the props to ready the shows for their respective opening nights. It’s an exciting busy time and you can be a part of it! We have a long history of creating excellent theatre here in the Fox Valley and we have big plans for the future. We hope you are excited by the new direction we have undertaken. Please consider a tax-deductible donation so we can continue our mission of bringing excellent theatre to the Fox Cities.

- Berray Billington, president Atitic Chamber Theatre

“I’ve got to mention the Attic Theatre performance of Other Desert Cities we attended last week…It was the best community theatre production that we've ever attended!”

– Robert Sigman,  Past President Fox Valley Symphony


CREATING EXCELLENT COMMUNITY THEATRE

Attic Theatre was founded in 1950 in the attic of the Cloak family home on North Union Street in Appleton, Wisconsin.  What began as an acting class has become the longest running community theatre in the Fox Valley.  In the early days, Attic performed in a variety of venues such as Jefferson School and local church basements.  When Lawrence University opened the Music-Drama Center, Attic began its lengthy partnership with LU, employing both theatres during the summer months.  Our newest venue, the beautiful UW Fox Valley Communication Arts Center, affords the opportunity to produce a wider array of plays with greater audience appeal.

From simple beginnings, Attic has grown to produce hundreds of full-scale shows over a span of more than 60 years.  In addition to a full summer season, Attic currently offers a popular children’s workshop in the spring and a weeklong day camp in the summer.

Each year, thousands of people participate in Attic Theatre on stage, backstage, as volunteers, or as audience members.  Ticket sales exceed 5,000 annually.  Attic truly does create excellent community theatre.
