AACT and TNM

Did you know...that the Community Players of Hobbs is a current member of the American Association of Community Theatre, and of Theatre New Mexico?

So what, you might say.

Well, here are some examples of what AACT and TNM can do for you.

Through AACT, you can receive discounts on music, costumes, and performance rights. There is a network of AACT member organizations that will assist with technical issues (loaning of specialized props/costumes), extensive message boards (believe me, every problem you can come up with has probably been solved by someone at some time), and a knowledge base of "how to's" for a broad range of theatre subjects. Visit http://www.aact2.org for more information.

Theatre New Mexico offers assistance via a network of community theatre organizations in New Mexico. From Artesia to Los Alamos, Farmington to Las Vegas, TNM has over 30 theatre organizations statewide. Member theatres often loan equipment/props/costumes, can provide technical assistance, and have even had members perform in show with other theatre groups. Expertise, assistance, advertising for member theatres, audition notices, and a large network of fellow "theatre people" are available to assist. Via TNM, there is even opportunity to take a show "on the road" for a special engagement at a fellow TNM playhouse (we have a standing invitation to "travel" a show to the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center in Artesia, for example). TNM also awards scholarships and statewide awards in recognition of theatre service, and hosts the state level AACTFest competitions (odd numbered years) and theatre conferences (even numbered years). Visit them at http://www.theatrenm.org for more information.

As of this year, Hobbs is represented on the Theatre New Mexico Board of Directors. Robert Schumacher is a Board Member at Large with TNM, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about being a TNM member!
