Build the Path for Success for Early Career Artists

Actor’s Express in Atlanta, GA by Lara Smith

About our cause

Actor's Express is committed to supporting new work and emerging artists to ensure the future of American theatre. We produce at least one World Premiere production per season, host playwrights for readings and workshops, and offer a Professional Development Program, which offers a total organizational immersion for artists early in their career. Providing a bridge from academia to the professional world helps early career artists build a foundation for success.

What population we serve?

Early career artists (playwrights, actors, directors, and stage managers) planning to pursue a career in live theatre.

What success we've already had

We produce work that wins critical awards all around the city and kick starts conversations around tough issues. In our twenty-four year history, we've produced world premieres of playwrights who have gone on to have great success. Our professional development program and In the Works reading program creates the artists and voices of tomorrow.

Our primary mission
Actor's Express is a theatre that challenges and reflects contemporary human experiences in an inclusive environment. We seek to jumpstart individual transformations through the shared adventure of our live performances.
Why should you support our cause

We provide early career artists with opportunities at a professional theatre to get them on the path of successful arts creation.

How the money will be spent

We would use the money for teacher salaries, staff time spent on the Professional Development program, on materials and talent for world premiere productions, and on talent for readings throughout the season.
