We are a group of dedicated people from all walks of life and with varying levels of experience who love theatre in all its aspects. Beginning under the auspices of Historical Jonesboro/Clayton County Inc., but now working with the Henry Arts Alliance, we came about through bringing to life the original work, Moonshine and Magnolias, which chronicles Clayton County’s history from 1845 to the present. Realizing the thirst for theatre both in ourselves and in the county, we resolved to create this new acting troupe.  In our first season, in addition to Moonshine and Magnolias, we produced Steel Magnolias and then The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Our second season began with an encore performance of M&M for Historical Jonesboro/Stately Oaks, and went on to an acclaimed production of The Miracle Worker (our Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller were invited to reprise their roles at the Helen Keller birthplace in Alabama!) and a rousing production of the beloved musical, Oklahoma!.  The season ended with Nuncrackers, a show that literally had audiences rocking with laughter.  In 2015, our first production was the children’s show, Winnie-the-Pooh, and the second was a beautiful tribute to the Gershwin brothers, A Gershwin Revue, followed by the hilarious southern comic favorite, Dearly Departed; our Christmas show , Papa’s Angels, was nominated for 6 Metropolitan Atlanta Theatre (MAT) Awards, including Best Director and Best Show. This year opened with the beloved musical Oliver!, which saw record crowds; The Moving of Lilla Barton, in May, brought both tears and laughter to our great audiences; the hilarious comedy by Atlanta author Topher Payne, Tokens of Affection, played during August, and our Christmas show (in November) was A Christmas Carol: Another Look. It tells the familiar story, but from a little different perspective:  this Scrooge had a grasping and critical MOTHER; and it is a loving niece whose efforts to pull him from his dark space aid the familiar spirits in their effort to turn him around.

  1. Hello,
    I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I am giving it a shot with the hopes of a reply.
    I wrote a musical play about a homeless couple. My problem is, I have all the melodies for the songs, but have no idea where to find someone to take my melodies for the lyrics and transcribe them to sheet music or how to do arrangements. I looked into hiring an arranger, but do to a very limited income I cannot afford one. If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it.
    Thank you,
    David McKenzie

    1. Good luck in your search. We unfortunately do not have anyone capable of doing that work with you. Check with the larger theaters closer to Atlanta.

  2. Do you do small plays away from the theatre?. Looking for entertainment for the residence at the independent living facility where I live. We are willing to pay. Looking for something in October.

    1. We had plans to do a show for another facility during December but plans fell through, so we didn’t do any prep on the show. We therefore aren’t ready with any show that we could travel to you in October. We are capable of doing such a show, but we would need at least a couple months’ notice in order to make it work. Many of our core actors and tech people are very busy with other projects, so the advance notice is very important. Thanks for thinking of us, and maybe we can do something with you in the future.
