Virtual Theatre for the 2020-2021 Season

In response to the need for social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, ACC Theatre made the decision to transition to virtual theatre for the 2020-2021 season. Due to the ACC Drama Department's prompt response, ACC Theatre was one of the first theatres in the area to resume operation during the pandemic.

Our first priority was the safety of everyone involved. Rehearsals were held through a combination of virtual conferencing and socially-distanced in-person rehearsals. The performances of our two 2020-2021 regular season productions were recorded using green screen cubicles and streamed on BroadwayOnDemand.com. All participants completed ACC's COVID-19 screening protocols prior to entering the rehearsal space, among other precautions.

Despite the challenges, our students were able to continue their hands-on theatre education, our volunteers were able to hone their theatrical skills, and our patrons were able to enjoy live theatre safely.

Antigone adapted by David Rush

Antigone - adapted by David Rush

This modern version of the Greek tragedy Antigone is a fresh and vibrant take on an ancient classic. After a bloody civil war, King Creon of Thebes forbids anyone from carrying out proper funeral rites for the traitor who started it. Antigone, the traitor’s sister and King Creon’s niece, dares to defy his order, and sparks a family feud that pits father against son, sister against sister, and civil law against the gods.
