VW Civic Theatre information

The Van Wert Civic Theatre proudly presents its second summer youth theatre production, The Actor Games.

The very best of the area’s young actors have been hard at work perfecting their craft as they prepare for Friday night’s opening of The Actor Games written by Wade Bradford.

Putting a youth performance together requires patience, talent and a sincere love for community theatre, all qualities possessed by director Amber Evans. She has spent countless hours not only directing but coordinating a set design, costumes, lights, sound, volunteers and a myriad of other tasks that might go unnoticed to the untrained eye.  Assistant director Joelle May has been at her side through the entire process and has been an invaluable asset to the production..

The young actors have given up a significant piece of their summer vacation to put together a show for the community to enjoy and they expect and deserve a full house for every performance, so come out to see them.

The Actor Games opens this Friday night and will play again Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Shows times are 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. At only $10 per seat, it’s an affordable way to experience live theatre with the whole family.  For the best seats available call the Box Office at 419.238.9689 between 2 and 6 p.m.  Remaining seats will be sold at the door 30 minutes prior to curtain for all performances.
