This is the kind of ridiculous fun that audiences have come to expect from us! It's a party, it's a show, it's The Toxic Avenger!
This musical adapatation of the 1980's cult movie classic keeps are the cheep thrills you love and add a dash of magic. Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey (just off Exit 13B on the Turnpike). Foiled by the mayor's bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey's first superhero. Affectionately known as Toxie, our new hero is a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He's out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
We've Found a Home! We are Headed West!
We are excited to announce that ATC has signed a long-term lease on a wonderful space located at 2219 Freedom Drive. We want to thank all of our dedicated friends who spread the word about our situation. We also want to thank our amazing new landlord, Stuart Owens! He heard of our plight and had the foresight to see that ATC would be the perfect tenant. He has been a great help as we have worked through the details. We also need to give a big round of applause to our patrons who have provided financial support. This move would not be possible without all of you.
Our new location is the former Gotham City Studios. It is going to require minimal up fit to begin producing, but will be a work in progress. As the season progresses, we will continue to improve the theatre and its amenities. We are putting the final touches on the season schedule and will be in touch with all those details soon! We anticipate the first production to open before the end of 2016.
For a sneak peek at a part of our plans, check out The Charlotte Observer article on our move and some fun ideas for a new outdoor space!
