I've usually been very entertained by Academy's productions and projects. Most theatres this size don't have internship programs, but this makes a real difference in exposing young people to the hands-on practicality of running a theatre - from every angle. Academy could do so much more if there were consistent support from the Avondale community, the Decatur community and a good deal more recognition in general. This theatre has SO much potential!

The Academy Theatre does more than almost any other group I know of in Metro Atlanta to truly foster the widest variety of new and emerging artists, performers and artists. It's passionate, supportive company members will do everything they can to see a project from inception to completion.

Academy Theatre bends over backwards to offer something for everyone. Granted, sometimes the production values are wobbly - but funding is often the culprit. I can't think of another theatre that comes close to their level of diversity. I wasn't a big fan of wrestling - but it's impressive that Academy managed to squeeze this in last season, alongside a burlesque dance troupe, Battle Acts and Michael Frayn's "Copenhagen" - not to mention the youth theatre, intern program, senior ensemble and a longstanding alliance with Working Title Playwrights. Some might say Academy tries too hard to please everyone -- jack of all trades and master of none. I'm willing to concede that, were they to narrow the focus a bit, the company might be taken more seriously. But for a small theatre company with no union contracts, this is a group well worth watching. Far exceeds expectations for a theatre of this size & scope, frankly I'm amazed.

Academy Theatre is the oldest theatre company in Atlanta. In its many incarnations, this group has made valiant efforts to serve as many interest groups as possible - currently running a youth outreach, senior outreach, housing a dance troupe and a notable regional playwright development collective. Academny recently hosted a benefit Haunted House, donating proceeds to a senior center and a local Animal Shelter. Under the direction of Robert Drake and Lorene Fey, Academy has continued to uphold the ideals set in motion by founder Frank Wittow - and deserves far better support from the Avondale Estates community and the Decatur community. Academy Theatre (and its management team) give back more than the majority of this community will ever know.
