The mission of ACTORS is to provide leadership in the performing arts for the people of Central Iowa through live theatrical presentations and educational opportunities for all ages.
ACTORS is an all volunteer amateur theater organization. We produce five shows a year that feature community people.
Central Iowa and the City of Ames. Our casts and crews come from as far away as Des Moines, Carroll, Fort Dodge, and Marshalltown.
Why we deserve the makeover
ACTORS is a community theater, but more important than that, it is a theater that builds the kind of community that people come back to over and over again. It is all volunteer, and we pay no one, but casts and crews come back because the people of ACTORS want to do what is right for each other and the community. Under this community strategy, ACTORS has figured out low cost/high quality theater.
ACTORS is a resource for our local schools and other community organizations. We provide facilities, equipment, and costumes to other community organizations when needed.
We turn our ticket revenue into producing shows and maintaining the organization. But, now our office equipment is old and it sucks. We have talked about replacing an old HP 4600 color laserjet that now gives us a wash of magenta. Our Lenovo tower has served us long and well. Very long. And there is a Canon copier that is older than most school children. We can't scan unless we take it home. It will be expensive to update the computer, printer, and copier that are all on the edge of life. Your help is needed.
