ACTors in ACTion - Everywhere!

It's been a busy year so far for the ACT family! Congratulations to Erik Hamilton (right) and Plano Senior High for being nominated for SIX DSM awards for "Hello Dolly!" Erik was also chosen as one of the two people to represent the school in the finale, choreographed by Michael B. Tapley.

Not pictured is Chris Clark, who won Best actor at the DSM awards for his work in "Jesus Christ Superstar."

Eric Feldman (member of the Vocal Majority, and pictured below in ACT's "Once On This Island") was awarded TMEA First Chair, All-State Men's Chorus. Fantastic job, Eric!

Isha Lal (left, in the ACT production of "Seussical") and Emily Kolb (right, in ACT's "Wonka") were both selected for this year's TMEA All-Regions Treble I Choir. Kudos!

Last, but never least, ACT's Musical Director in Residence Kathy French was nominated for State Musician for the Texas Commission on the Arts. Way to go, Kathy!

May 29-June 7 - Chicago

The beloved musical arrives on the ACT stage! It's Chicago in the 1920s, where housewife Roxie Hart sets her sights on vaudeville stardom. She takes a twisted path, promised a big break by Fred Casely at the Onyx Club, but ends killing him and lands in the Cook County Jail wherein lies an unbelievable cast of characters including Velma, who is believed to have killed her husband, the matron "Mama" Morton, and shark lawyer Billy Flynn. Unforgettable music wraps this powerful and popular drama.

$15 ($12 for members).
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
Produced through special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing, Inc.
May 28-June 7 - The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Teen production.

The beloved and hysterical "Cliff Notes" version of the Bard's work returns to the ACT stage in this popular production. Want to see all 37 of Shakespeare's plays in less than 100 minutes? Done! Of course, "Titus Andronicus" may show up as a cooking show, "Othello" is set to rap, and "Hamlet" will take all of a minute or two ...

$15 ($12 for members).
