ACC Theatre Is Asking for Your Support

Every year the ACC Theatre and the ACC Foundation reach out for contributions to support our Summer Children’s Theatre Festival. While we have unfortunately decided to cancel this year’s Festival due to safety concerns, we at ACC Theatre are looking ahead optimistically to next year. Our Summer Children’s Theatre Festival relies on the support of our community, now more than ever.

The Annual Summer Children’s Theatre Festival has been a part of local children’s lives for thirty-five years. The program consists of two productions each year. The cast of these productions are comprised entirely of children ages 6-17 from all around the Alvin area, who enjoy the chance to experience a full audition, rehearsal, and performance process. For many, this is the first opportunity to participate in theatre or the fine arts. The audiences of these performances are primarily groups from local daycares – further enabling us to bring an authentic, fulfilling theatre experience to these young people as well. Donations from our patrons and friends of the ACC Foundation allow us to keep ticket prices low, and there is no cost to audition or participate in our productions, meaning that we can truly make high quality children’s theatre accessible to everyone.

To help us out, please visit the ACC Marketplace here. Your contribution will help us host next summer’s Summer Children’s Theatre Festival despite the hardships of this year. There are also many other options to give charitably through the ACC Foundation, including the ACC COVID-19 Emergency Fund which directly aids ACC students and staff affected by the pandemic.

Thank you for your continued patronage of Alvin Community College Theatre, and your support for the ACC Foundation. We look forward to continuing to serve the youth of our community.

Art by Yazmina Reza

Art - a play by Yazmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton

How much would you pay for a white painting? One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting: all white with white lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists that Marc isn’t judging it by the right standards. Their friend Ivan is pulled into the disagreement, and battle lines are drawn. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, their friendships are tested to the pointing of breaking. Winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play, this is a study of art, friendship, and just how much a relationship can bear before it crumbles.

Little Shop of Horrors

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman

Little Shop of Horrors

Meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to down-and-out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it – blood! A devious sci-fi smash, Little Shop of Horrors is one of the longest running Off-Broadway shows, charming audiences with its tongue-in-cheek comedy for over 30 years. Discover – or re-discover – this delightfully chilling tale for yourself with ACC Theatre’s production of Little Shop of Horrors!
