Black Comedy
By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Dave Fisher

Performance Dates: May 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 8pm and May 25 at 3pm. 

Adults $18 and Seniors/Students $16.

In this wild comic farce, a desperate sculptor hopes to impress his fiance's father and a potential patron by "borrowing" a few antiques from his absent neighbor.  A fuse blows, plunging them all into darkness just as the neighbor arrives home. All things must be set right before the lights come back on.  Using the ingenious device of light reversal−when the apartment is lit, the stage is dark and when the power goes out, the stage lights come on−the audience can enjoy all the action of the characters fumbling and rushing headlong in the “dark”.

"…it must be a priority to offer a variety of entertainment, educational, and cultural opportunities— something for everyone. Performing and visual arts play a key role in making a community a wonderful place to live."
—Ronald J. Norick, Mayor, Oklahoma City

For more than 17 years, Acme has been an active part of the local community, providing high-quality productions to the public at a price that makes them accessible to everyone. Acme has garnered more local, regional, national and international recognition than any other community theater in New England. Acme has twice been recognized as one of the top 10 community theaters in the United States.

Acme Theater Productions is thrilled to announce that we were chosen for inclusion in the 2008-2009 Massachusetts Catalogue for Philanthropy. This highly selective organization recognizes charities that are "predicated on good ideas, well-implemented, with cost-effectiveness and demonstrated excellent results, recognized by others as outstanding in their fields." It is a great honor to be chosen, and we invite you to visit our own special CFP webpage to see what they said about us:

http://www.catalogueforphilanthropy.org/ma/2008/acme_theater_83943.htm

Our ticket sales and returning audience members also let us know we are succeeding in the quality and diversity of the work we present. But we can't do any of this without your support! You see, only about 50% of our operational costs are funded by ticket sales; the rest is covered by donations from people like you who recognize and appreciate the outstanding theatre Acme provides each and every show.

Here's why we need your help. In the last four years, we have seen a serious and significant decline in local financial support for the arts, and support for community theaters like Acme has fallen to dangerously low levels. Also during these difficult economic times, we have experienced a substantial increase in our necessary operating costs. Your financial support at any level is appreciated!

For convenience, the Catalogue has established a Donor Link so that your support can go directly to Acme, without writing a check or needing a stamp. The Catalogue even issues a receipt for your tax purposes! I ask you to choose a support level to show not just your encouragement for Acme Theater, but to show that the arts are an important and necessary part of life. Acme Theater is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization; 100% of the money received goes directly to the support of quality live theater.

Donor Link: http://www.catalogueforphilanthropy.org/nfg/donate_now.php?region=ma&id=83943

Thank you very, very much.

David Sheppard, Executive Director
Acme Theater Productions

"The arts are at the very center of community development in this time of change… change for the better. It is essential to the future of our country that the arts be encouraged and supported."
—Robert Gard, Rockefeller Foundation
