HISTORY OF IMPACT THEATRE ATLANTA
In 2012, we produced Shirlene Holmes' A LADY AND A WOMAN at the Southwest Arts Center. At that time, we were not a company but a group of artists wanting to tell stories that were not being told. That play had such a powerful effect on our audience members and artists alike that it ignited a desire in us to do more. The support of our fans and friends inspired us to provide a permanent space where powerful stories could be told. I mentioned this idea to other friends and even some students - they were all elated at the thought and offered to help in whatever way they could. Those wonderful people became our board and that fall, Impact Theatre Atlanta was born! Since that time, we have had the opportunity to share stories that have continued to impact lives. In addition, we have offered our audiences several community workshops, classes, conversations and events giving us the chance to connect more closely with those who support us and encouraging them to share their thoughts, their desires, and their own stories.
