HOST THEATRE: Actors Theatre of Louisville



Actors Theatre of Louisville

Actors Theatre has become the cornerstone of the revitalization of Louisville’s Main Street. As the centerpiece of the city’s urban cultural district, Actors Theatre has significant economic impact on a vital downtown life.

The theatre offers an apprentice/intern training program designed to help recent college graduates make the transition from academic to professional theatre. This competitive program results in excellent employment placement for its talented participants.

Four active volunteer support groups assist the theatre—Actors Associates, a service-oriented organization founded in 1966; the Generation One Board, a league of young professionals, established in 1991, which works primarily to build a new generation of audiences; the Teacher Advisory Council, a group of active and retired teachers; and a large usher corps, that assists with patron services at performances. In all, over 900 individuals provide volunteer service for the theatre.

Acclaimed for its artistic programming and business acumen, Actors Theatre presents over 500 performances of about 20 productions during its year-round season composed of a diverse array of contemporary and classical fare. It boasts one of the largest per capita season ticket holder audiences in the country and logs an annual attendance of over 200,000.

The theatre’s other community outreach offerings include free apprentice showcase productions; public seminars and workshops; pre-and post-performance discussions; facility tours; discounted season tickets plans for students, senior citizens, people with disabilities and educators; audio described performances for low vision patrons and performances interpreted in American Sign Language. Works by distinguished local and regional visual artists are showcased during the season in a free gallery located throughout the theatre’s lobbies.
