“RED” Hosts Benefit Performances, Prepares for Regional Competition

red imageMonongalia Arts Center (MAC) is proud to announce that its production of RED has won the honor of performing at the AACTFest Region IV festival, presented by the Southeastern Theatre Conference, to be held at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre in Chattanooga, Tennessee March 4 – 8, 2015.

To be eligible to perform at the Southeastern Theatre Conference festival, the MACplayers production of RED performed at the West Virginia Theatre Conference festival in November 2014. In addition to winning the West Virginia Theatre Conference festival, the production was honored with the Festival Adjudicator Award for “Best Play” and the show’s co-star and co-director Shenendoah Thompson received the award for “Best Actor.”

MAC is hoping to receive top honors at the Southeastern Theatre Conference festival so it may perform at the national community theatre festival this summer in Grand Rapids, Michigan. AACTFest 2015 will take place June 23 – 28 and will showcase 12 community theatre productions from across the United States and the U.S. Military Overseas.

AACTFest 2015 details are available at aactfest.org/15. The public is invited to attend both the regional and national festivals.

The MACplayers performances of RED were at MAC in July 2014. The show was co-directed by and co-starred in by Morgantown actors David Beach and Shenendoah Thompson.

The MACplayers production is excited for the opportunity to perform at the AACTFest Region IV festival in March. Beach expressed, “We are pleased to be representing MAC and West Virginia at the Southeastern Theatre Conference festival with such an interesting and relevant play. The message of RED is that art, influence, and even life are all on a continuum. We've been lucky to have an outstanding production team to work with us. We also look forward to seeing the other productions at SETC festival so that we can applaud outstanding community theatre across the region.”
