The Adrian Chamber of Commerce presents...ADRIAN COMMUNITY THEATER
By SHARON KIESEL
The Adrian Chamber of Commerce has chosen to feature the Adrian Community Theater (A.C.T.) for the featured business/organization for October. A.C.T. was formed in 2011 and is the brain child of mother and daughter Liberty and Hayley Underwood and Sara Snyder.
The organization currently has six board members and the cast membership varies with each production. Over the past two years, the Adrian Community Theater has performed three and soon to be four plays as well as mini-performances for the Bates County Museum and the Burnt District event. The group also presents a murder mystery dinner theater in January that is held at the Adrian Optimist Building.
A.C.T. President Liberty Underwood said the group, which is presenting Little Women in November, was chosen because of its Christmas scenes and fit this time of year. The production has attracted a lot of high school students this time around, as well as adults. She said the community’s support has grown more and more with each play. The plays are held in the Adrian R-3 auditorium and the timing of when is worked around the school’s schedule. Play rehearsals are currently being held twice a week at the Adrian United Methodist Church.
The Little Women play is scheduled for November 15, 16, and 17. For ticket prices and more information, check the website at www.adriancommunitytheater.org, email email@example.com, or call 913-912-3228 and someone will return your call.
