10/18/2019 Being associated with Central Alabama Theater in any capacity makes you feel like you have a new family. Whether you are a patron, donor, volunteer, Jr. Advisory Board Member, Advisory Board Member, Board Member, Staff Member, Performer, or a first time guest, you are treated with dignity, respect, and are made to feel welcome. Once you experience this atmosphere, you WANT to come back. Also, the professional level of talent that Central Alabama Theater brings to Birmingham is rivaled by none and these performers always want to come back, because they have such a great time! I know that my donations are out to good use!

Central Alabama Theater is an organization that cares about people. The actors, staff, and creative teams all work in such a positive, friendly and safe environment. They are made to feel like they are truly appreciated and their ideas are always welcomed. Led by Executive and Artistic Director, Carl Peoples, the productions are of a high caliber. This is a one-stop shop where you can see a musical cabaret act, a play, a musical, a new play reading, talks backs with playwrights, in a warm, casual, and inviting atmosphere. The CAT Junior Board is also a unique group. They are young performers who learn first hand what it's like working in a theatre, even producing their very own cabaret performance. Some even are the opening act for the professional cabaret performers. You can sing along at Cat cabaret and the audiences never go away without a smile!
