ACT in Competition!

    Actors for Children Theatre of Flatwoods is 
representing the Commonwealth of Kentucky 
for the second year in a row at the Southeastern 
Theatre Conference.  ACT's cast and crew will 
travel to Chattanooga, Tennessee March 4-8 
to perform Monsters Under the Bed written 
by Gay H. Hammond and directed by Sarah 
Diamond Burroway.
  ACT exists to share live theatre with arts-
underserved children in our community.  
The troupe won "Outstanding Production" 
last fall at the Community Theatre Festival 
of the Kentucky Theatre Association in 
Richmond, KY.  ACT also won "Best 
Ensemble" and "Outstanding Costume 
/ Make-Up Design."  
   "ACT is really excited to perform for youth 
audiences in the Tri-state area," said Sarah 
Diamond Burroway, Director.  "To be named 
tops in the state by your peers is a tremendous 
honor. The ACT'ors are excited to perform and 
compete with the best theatre companies in 
the southeast at SETC."
   The six member cast includes:  Bill Burroway, 
Miranda Hutchinson and Emma Imes all of 
Flatwoods; Ethan Darby and Kristina Richins, 
both of Ashland; and Matthew Johnson of 
Wheelersburg, OH. 
   SETC is comprised of theatre companies 
from ten southeastern states. In 2014, ACT 
represented Kentucky at SETC with its 
award-winning production of "A Thousand 
Cranes" by Kathryn Schultz Miller. 
   ACT is also preparing to begin its spring 
touring production of "Shiver Me Timbers: 
A Pirate Play" by Gay H. Hammond.  A limited 
number of show dates are available for booking.
