Becoming an Encore Theatre Dress Circle Season Subscriber -- By Mary Cherry



It’s hard for me to believe that we are about to start our 25th season! When we started Encore Theatre Company, there was no Maguire Theatre and no Center Players. We were the only Community Theatre in the area. Through our association with the Arts of the Albemarle, we created the Main Street Stage which was our home for 13 years before we moved into the newly renovated Maguire. We are blessed to have had the support of our community for so many years.
In the past 25 years, with the help of our Dress Circle Season Subscribers, community businesses and our audience at large we have produced many quality shows, over 75 productions in all for the community. We’ve managed our money well and recently we were able to purchase and renovate a building to serve as our rehearsal space and storage facility. Everything is now housed under one roof. We build sets, store our costumes, props & furniture and rehearse there.
The Dress Circle has been a very important part of our success. It gives us the extra funding to bring you the best programming we can. Since we receive no government funding, our ticket sales, advertising and Dress Circle supports our shows and organization. We have many perks for our season subscribers. You can select your seating well in advance of the general public, Opening Night and the reception after are exclusive to the Dress Circle and since we are a 501.c.3 a portion
of you donations is tax deductible.
We know that there are many demands on time and resources but believe that a vibrant arts community in a small town is key to revitalization of the community and our quality of life. The arts bridge the gaps of understanding by bringing together many diverse audiences.
Each year we have the privilege to entertain you with great shows. For our Silver Anniversary Season, we have a wonderful season planned. Two comedies and a musical that are sure to transport you to a happy place. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to seeing you at our first production in October, Running Mates. If you would like information on becoming a Dress Circle Season Subscriber please contact me at 252 338-3382 or pick up our brochure at Arts of the
Albemarle and many locations around town.
