The beginnings of the American Theater Group (ATG) grew out of the desire to promote American culture through theater. In 2013, as current President of the Association Americans In Alsace (AIA), a call was put out to like minded individuals interested in theater. It was from this group of volunteers that the ATG created its first show Annie Jr.
Annie Jr was a great success and today holds the number one position when searched on Google. It has over one hundred thousand hits on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOBy_uQifoE ).
In 2014 the ATG produced its second show Seussical Jr with five performances to over seven hundred spectators ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkHc497PszU ) .
The ATG will be forever grateful to the association Americans In Alsace for its support and financial backing for the first two shows.
This year (2015) the Board of Americans In Alsace including myself as current President voted to financially back one more ATG show. The upcoming show is The Baker’s Daughter and is an original commissioned work by Christopher Bradley. The Baker’s Daughter presented by the American Theater Group and will not only be sponsored by the AIA but will be produced by the newly created PEACE Productions Agency. PEACE is an acronym for Promoting Education, Arts, Culture & Entertainment. It is the objective of PEACE Productions to support future theater works by the ATG and to work with all people interested in promoting peace through education, arts, culture and entertainment.
