After Hours Theatre rebranding

After Hours Theatre is rebranding itself into the Clearwater Theatre Collective.

Editor, The Times:

On the heels of our most successful production to date, a double-billed co-production working with Squidamisu Theatre and Clearwater Senior Secondary last April, presenting Betweenity and The Real Inspector Hound, we are now opening the curtains to a new exciting chapter.

After years of dedicated service as After Hours Theatre’s artistic director, Alex Arduini has announced that she is stepping down as AD … but not out! Stephen Raschke and Richard Stroh will step up as co-artistic directors to take the reins and help lead the group into some new and exciting directions. We will be looking towards expanding our production schedule, presenting more than one show per year, inviting guest co-productions and monthly drop-in improv nights. Next was the decision to merge with the North Thompson Arts Council, to join their family and help strengthen the bond and scope of Clearwater artists.

After Hours Theatre is also rebranding itself into the Clearwater Theatre Collective. We want to support those who are artistically motivated to share with the community a common love: the performing arts. And with that segue, we are looking for some new people to be involved in our theatrical community. If you have an interest in acting, light and sound design, set construction, painting, stage management, wardrobe design, make-up or props, come to our pre-season gathering on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the NTAC Studio Space in the Dutch Lake Community Centre. We will have some scripts to read, play some improv games and discuss our 2017 productions. If you are unable to make the meeting but are still interested in being a part of our collective, please email Stephen Raschke at: sraschke607 @gmail.com or Richard Stroh at: richardstroh@gmail.com.
