Halloween Party with Irma Thomas and Kermit Ruffins for a very good cause! Costumes are encouraged and refreshments will be available throughout the show. Celebrate among actors young and old and help to sustain one of New Orleans' most productive theatrical institutions!
The Anthony Bean Community Theater at 1333 S. Carrollton Avenue has served New Orleans since 1999. Over its 13-year-span the ABCT has graduated more than 1000 youth actors. Its after-school and weekend classes currently give almost 100 actors-in-training, ages 8 to 17, hours of instruction each week. Hands-on experience is given through the Theater's staging seven plays that feature its students, each year.
The ABCT building suffered damage to its roof and to its theaters ceiling and flooring due to Hurricane Isaac. The Halloween night benefit will raise funds to repair the building and assure that the Theater's 2012-2013 season goes forward.
