Agape Theatre

Agape Actors Co-Op announces its productions for 2015

Take your seats this year for live theater brought to you by The Agape Actors Co-Op. The nonprofit organization, founded by Olin Meadows, along with a few fellow actor friends, produces professional, thought-provoking shows in an intimate setting.

The group’s first production, The Trip to Bountiful, was held at The Monument Cafe in September 2013. “It was wonderful! The staff and management of the Monument were more than helpful and created a great environment for us to work in,” Olin recalls. “However, in the end, there was just no good space logistically for us to produce theatre.”

Agape Actors Co-Op now rehearses and performs at the Black Box Theater at East View High School, where they’ve formed an educational partnership with the theater department. “We have a lot of student involvement. Our apprentice program allows us to invite students from East View to act as designers and to fill technical roles in a production. Most theaters hire degreed professionals for those positions,” Olin explains.

Volunteers and donations help further this organization’s goals of building its own theater space, compensating actors, and furthering its apprenticeship programs for students.
