The Academy Theatre

The Academy Theatre is a nationally recognized professional Theatre where everything you experience will make you think. Founded in 1956 by Frank Wittow, the Academy Theatre is Georgia’s longest running integrated professional theatre. Our award-winning reputation for excellence in theater and education has been well earned, with a track record of successful productions, dedicated staff, the development of talent and continued alumni support. The Academy Theatre has been highly regarded for its productions of classic and contemporary plays, as well as its strong educational outreach programs – including a Theatre for Youth Touring Ensemble, Senior Touring Ensemble and numerous play development projects with underserved, at-risk and special populations. Over two million Georgia school children have been served through the Academy’s highly acclaimed, innovative performances. And the Academy Theatre is one of the most affordable theatres in the Atlanta market, making it an experience that everyone can enjoy on any budget.

We have been to one meeting and it was inspirational. We were intrigued with the different levels of audience development and to realize where our organization was in that structure was eye opening. We are excited about future meetings. We are grateful to be included so that we can strategize about how to get our work to more audience members.
