Players’ Team Ready to Compete
Bay City Players is thrilled to announce that we will be competing at the 2019 Community Theatre Association of Michigan’s AACTFEST competition in Owosso, Michigan on March 15-17, 2019. AACTFEST is a community theatre competition held every two years across the United States. The completion is open to only 8 groups and Players is very fortunate to have secured a spot! There are 3 levels of competition: State, Regional, and Nationals. The top two shows from each level advance onto the next stage. At the competition, our team will have 10 minutes to set up everything used in the show from a 10’ by 10’ box. The team will have one hour to perform the show and 10 minutes to break down the set prior to adjudication. No pressure!
Our team will be performing a ground-breaking show entitled 35MM: A Musical Exhibition. 35MM is a striking multimedia musical which demonstrates that, not only is a picture worth 1,000 words, it can even inspire a song! This a modern show with no dialogue or defined roles pertaining to sex/gender or age. The production seamlessly marries song, dance movement, and photography into a harmonious piece of artistry. The show offers 16 show-stopping tunes and many thought-provoking photographs for the pleasure of the audience.
Our AACTFEST team will be performing the show at Bay City Players on March 8, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. prior to the competition is Owosso. The performance is open to the public with a suggested minimum donation of $10.00 to help underwrite the cost of the competition. We will not be selling advance tickets and will collect admission at the door on the night of the show. Please join us for this innovative production!
