Smatterings Theater, Script Writing, and Other Tech Stuff
"That was good. Do it again." Kathy Sutter: Director and Co-founder of ACTS
the theater that I have played a part in, 1991-2002
ACTS has been putting on quality shows since 1990.
Living Nativity is one of ACTS annual events. It was performed in the barn behind St. John's School.
"If I wanted to see a show, I'd buy a ticket. " Ruth Willerth
ACTS has put on the two shows I wrote. While working with the theater group, sometimes I got to act. The rest of the time I did tech. At the time, ACTS' six lekos had an effective range of 20 feet. The real question was what can one do with a coffee can after
the can becomes defective, and no longer holds any coffee?
The majority of their stage was lit with work lights, and tin cans with 150 watt flood lights screwed in.
The Heart of ACTS
For ten years, ACTS performed shows at Saint John's School on the corner of Westwood and Sandridge Road, in Alden, New York.
While we appreciated being able to utilize Saint John's School facilities, we were in need of a place to put our productions that we could call our own.
The Summer of 2001 we did our first show at the Bean Counter Coffee House, 1470 Church Street, in the center of the town of Alden in NY.
Love by Stephanie Genco is a poem written by one of ACTS actors. Stephanie joined ACTS Fall 2002. Like most people in ACTS, she is multi-talented.
Lighting Inspirations is a short slide show showing some of the things I think our stage lights should capture.
Tech and Writing Links
Smatterings Theater Tech and Writings Links This is my prized collection favorite tech links.
Film, TV, and Radio, has been added to my theater tech link section for the people out there that found this page through a search engine, who are more interested in scriptwriting than they are in theater. Many of the script writing links covered film writing along with play writing. Most stage plays have to be adapted to make a screenplay. From an acting viewpoint: sometimes you can pick up a character's mannerism from watching a movie. From a writer's viewpoint; many of the concepts used in film are global concepts, and work well in many mediums.
