From Alacrity Players to Alacrity Project
Alacrity Players was founded in 2006 by Hope Alumni Emily Niewendorp, Kathryn Bedrosian and Blaine Turk with a mission to challenge audiences and bring multiple art forms to the stage. The Player’s debut production, entitled Strangers, showcased a montage of dramatic short plays encompassing war, the dynamics of city living, economic strife, and hope. Additional productions, Growing Season and Smoke ‘em If You Got ‘em, and fund raising events, created an encouraging and energetic community of artists and friends.
In 2011 Alacrity Players took stock and morphed into Alacrity Project with the intention of bringing a more futuristic-minded, creative and concentrated purpose to the stage. The theater company engages most frequently these days through A Live Series, which is currently hosted monthly by FirstLive Studio at Arlene’s Grocery. Stay tuned as we move into the unknown.
