Welcome to 35below, ACT’s intimate black box performance space.
Our 2019-20 season includes performances produced by local theatre groups. Plus, we’re thrilled to continue Listen to This, our popular monthly storytelling series. We have also launched Artistic Horizons, a program that gives local artists the opportunity to pursue new creative paths in the theatre.
About the Artistic Horizons Season
Asheville Community Theatre has launched Artistic Horizons, a program that gives local artists the opportunity to pursue new creative paths in the theatre. Artistic Horizons will feature productions proposed by new or emerging artists, writers who are expanding their craft to include playwriting, or first time directors who want to workshop a piece before committing to a full performance run. ACT seeks a diversity of voices, perspectives, and experiences; scripts by women and/or people of color; and scripts that illuminate contemporary issues.
In 2019-20, we have selected productions from Monica McDaniel, a poet and playwright who is working on a new play; Maria C. Young, an author who is adapting her memoir for the stage; Paula O’Brien, an actress who is creating a new full length autobiographical piece for the stage; and Zachary Eden, an actor who is trying his hand at directing for the first time.
