BATAVIA – In the heart of Batavia's downtown, just steps from city offices and local police, sits one of the area's oldest and boldest stage companies.
The Albright Theatre Company, home to 80 volunteer members, has become known for nearly four decades of cutting edge theatre productions. Albright began in 1974 with a membership of five people and an audience of eight. It first was housed in a converted church in Warrenville, moving to its Batavia location in 2001.
The company performs at least six shows every year from its theater space above the Batavia Government Center, 100 N. Island Ave. Batavia. The not-for-profit organization relies on ticket sales, fundraisers and donations for funding.
Albright's volunteers do everything from build sets to direct to act, make costumes, sell tickets and more. They run everything from the bottom up.
“We are all volunteer,” said Jeannine Collins, box office manager. “We do it because we love it.”
All are welcome to audition for a performance. Anyone interested in joining Albright, can act or volunteer to help in a performance, paying $10 in annual dues to become a member. Albright has members of all ages from across the Tri-Cities and the surrounding area, and every member get to vote on the board of directors and the shows the company will perform.
