Community theatre, that wonder of nationwide, volunteer-run artistry, remains as popular as it is miraculous. If you’re a working actor, chances are your dream of theatrical stardom was born on a community theatre stage. Unlike the high stakes and cutthroat competition that may dominate professional acting, the local theatre world brings communities together, inspires local audiences, and launches the careers of emerging thespians.
Encore’s mission is to foster the development of and dedication to the highest quality of community theatre, and strives to continually raise the bar in a sector fuelled by commitment and which runs on joy.
