The Albright Community Theatre is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is volunteer driven and relies upon the hard work and dedication of the people of the community.
The Albright theatre first opened its doors in April of 1974 with a membership of 5 people and an audience of 8. From these humble beginnings we have grown to be one of the most widely respected theatre groups in the area. We are proud of who we are and what we have accomplished. Currently we have an audience of over 500 local patrons that continues to grow. All of which have been generous in their artistic and financial support of our endeavor.
From our first show "Star Spangled Girl" performed in an old converted church in Warrenville to our current theatre above the Batavia Government Center, the Albright has proven that we are a strong and resilient company. We have weathered many storms, including a fire that destroyed everything, the loss of some key members, and the constant need to relocate. In our past we have needed to pack it all up a grand total of 8 times. Despite all of these trials we rely upon what we do have, our most valuable asset, our members and their love of theatre.
In August of 2018 at the opening performance of "Romeo and Juliet", the Albright Theatre Company proudly announced that after 45 years they were officially changing their name to the Albright Community Theatre!! The logo of the theatre is also being voted on by our patrons and will be unveiled on the closing performance of "A Christmas Carol" and the end of our 2018 season!!
