Theatre Tuscaloosa hosted the Alabama Community Theatre Festival (ACTFest) in November and competed against three other theatres from Alabama. We were named Best of Show for our performance of The End of a Line by Robert Hawkins. As a result, we will represent Alabama in the Community Theatre Festival at the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Mobile, AL March 7-11, 2018. We will face off with community theatres from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, and West Virginia.
This one-night-only, pay-what-you-will fundraising performance is presented to help off-set the expenses of traveling the show to Mobile. Here's what we need:
All donations at this performance will help make this exciting opportunity possible!
Tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis beginning at 6:30 p.m., and the show will start at 7:30 p.m. A farewell reception will follow the performance in the Wilson Carr Rehearsal Hall.
In the mid-1980s, two elderly sisters in rural Alabama receive a visitor from New York City who has come to deliver the ashes of their nephew, Williamson Welton Gravlee, III. Forced to confront the reality of Williamson's homosexuality and the AIDS epidemic that claimed his life, the Gravlee sisters must each find their own way to deal with the loss of their family's last male heir. Told with humor and compassion, this one-act play is a beautiful and poignant tale of life, love, and loss.
