AACT opens the 2018-19 season with
Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson
Silent Sky is the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, the 19th-century astronomer who wasn’t allowed to touch a telescope. While struggling to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love, Henrietta and the women of the Harvard Observatory made discoveries that allow us to know our place in the universe.
We need your help to acquire the resources to develop each of these stories fully on stage, give all our actors and technical crew opportunities to learn and grow, support our volunteer staff, and keep tickets affordable.
Sponsors will be listed in all programs throughout the season.
Donors at the highest levels will be recognized in show publicity, including posters, radio ads, and newspaper promotions.

Auburn Area Community Theatre announces open auditions for our fall 2018 production of To Kill a Mockingbird. This is a dramatization of the Pulitzer Prizewinning novel by Harper Lee. Although set in 1935, the topics of tolerance and racial injustice resonated with the social upheaval of the 1960’s, and are still relevant today.
The cast requires a diverse group of 12 males, 8 females, and 3 children to play Scout, Jem, and Dill. We also need young ladies to audition for the "grownup" Scout as she tells her story and Mayella Ewell, who falsely testifies in court. There are also lots of "extras" needed for the courtroom scene - perfect roles for those with minimal rehearsal availability. Gospel singers are also needed for musical numbers.
In addition to the case, we are also still looking for some behind the scenes volunteers: stage manager and assistants and a set designer/construction lead.
Actors will have opportunities to read from the script, but may also perform a dramatic monologue if they have prepared one. This production contains racial and sexual content along with strong language. Gunshot effects will be used during the performance.
This production is sponsored by the Alabama 200 Bicentennial Commission.
Auditions will be held August 6th and 7th, 6 - 8 pm at JDCAC
with callbacks on August 9th.
What's all the excitement??
