ALWAYS STAY CONNECTED:
Before you begin looking at what we do, take a moment to watch a video put together by our own International Thespian Actor, Mickey Estrella on what ATC has to offer!
The 2020-2021 Theatre Season taught us so much about how dedicated we could show ourselves to be! We worked daily to create a place that presented the voices of our performers, working to continue to shine and grow. We are working to continue to grow at such a progressive rate across the board of all aspects of the Ayala Theatre Company.
The Ayala Theatre Company will continue our mission to be an inclusive and creative outlet for the students while providing quality entertainment and expressive performances to the community. Our students will be challenged to question, express, and be uplifted by the power of performance.
We are well-established and positioned to maintain our previous production schedule, and we are striving to push the expectations of what can be done in person and backed up virtually! We realize that our responsibility to the community is to provide the much-needed escape and opportunity to deepen our community roots. And we know that there are some people who aren't able to see the productions they want to, without being able to come in person. With our supporters in mind, we are also working to film each of our productions and stream them online through a pay site.
Please check in with the Calendar section for a listing of the premiere dates for the two scheduled Main Stage Plays:
The season also presents opportunities to see our talented and dedicated troupe members of the International Thespian Society Troupe 5173 adapt, write, direct, and perform in the following showcases:
HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL
WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
...as well as a Murder Mystery Dinner (or two).
The 2021 Season Advanced Class will produce and present the Second Annual Shakespeare Festival in May.
This season's Production and Performance Course presents three Shows exploring the bonds and themes of Loyalty, Love, Disillusion, and Revenge:
Theatre World Tour
Four Themes, Four Lives, Four Nights
The Original One Act Plays: TBD
Please be sure to check back regularly, or follow us on Instagram. It's going to be an unbelievable season, and we hope that you are with us for each production, each scene, and each line.
This time in history has instilled one reassuring certainty: We need art. We need expression. We need a safe place to create both. That's what we are in every moment. This year, we are looking to delve deeper into the central themes our company wants to explore through various narratives, iconic and original. Our goal is to present our varied voices and characters on the stage, in person, throughout the season.
Each year, we offer auditions to bring students into the ADVANCED THEATRE and PRODUCTION & PERFORMANCE courses. This year, these auditions are being submitted through email by the student applicant. Each prospective candidate will email their Performance Resume along with TWO (2) Monologues (One Comedic, One Dramatic--these can be non-original, meaning from a film, a show, or a play) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For the official process, please see the form below. Please do not hesitate to email any questions as well.
As stated above, we are 100% self-reliant but that includes having to find ways to cover the costs of make-up, costumes, royalties, scripts, and props. We have made a commitment that we will NOT charge for tickets to view any of our shows. If, however, you are able to help, anything will be greatly appreciated!
