Theatre for you.
Above the Law's mission is to challenge the norm of theatre by presenting classic and unique stories in relatable ways while mentoring the future of the artform.
Theatre ATL will choose and present productions with an audience first mentality. Basically, taking the stance that the audience is the most important members of the theater.Theatre as an outlet for its artists has its place yes, and it needs it. ATL wants to embrace why people go to the theatre...for entertainment. Audiences struggle to relate to an 1800 British period drama. ATL will bring those same stories, and new ones, to the community in a way that audiences can identify with.
ATL will also focus on mentoring the future of theatre. Every production will either feature a young performer in the cast or have an entire separate young performer company. This gives these performers the opportunity to go through the rehearsal process with an adult company to gain the knowledge of a professional theatre experience to help them achieve their goals. They will have their own scheduled performances throughout the run of each production and have the unique opportunity to serve as understudy to their adult counterpart.
