The Dream Lives On Through Art Forms & Theatre Concepts, Inc.

Telling stories is what we enjoy doing at Art Forms & Theatre Concepts, Inc. As many of you may already know, we’re celebrating our 22nd year of presenting the African American experience on the stages of the Low Country this year.  Founded on October 30th, 1995 with the mission of ensuring the African-American’s presence on the stages of the Lowcountry. Here in the City of Charleston since that time the African-Americans are now accepted on the stages all around us, and are spreading their wings throughout the area and are telling these wonderful stories.

I fondly remember some of the talents we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and are very proud of where and what they are doing now. Keep spreading the stories.  Keep the memories alive. I remember our wonderful classes and the ensemble feel we had when we resided on the third floor of the Dock Street Theatre.  We all learned from each other.  But we grew.  Through the years we have had numerous challenges, and your support and encouragement has helped us meet each challenge. The challenge now is to help Art Forms & Theatre Concepts, Inc. raise funds to hire an Executive Director to work with a volunteer Board of Directors, along with the Artisitc Director, Art Gilliard to meet the constant changes the company has had to face. With growth comes expectatons, and now we need your help to meet those expectations.

Our upcoming production “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf” is another opportunity for us to showcase some of the wonderful talent here in the Lowcountry while we raise funds. Tickets are on sale now, (866)811-4111) and patrons and supporters are still being sought.  Please visit our Current Season section to learn more about this production and its cast!
