Our New Voices and Visions goal - Apricot Sky Productions is looking to give voice and encouragement to highly motivated actors, directors and writers by developing new works, and inviting them to be long-term company members in a growing theatre group. We have recently become an equity professional company. We are excited and very proud about this recent change to Apricot Sky.
Apricot Sky Productions, founded by Eric Alter in 1999, is pleased to announce the expanding of the company. A Board of Directors has been appointed and given the task of reaching out to new theatre artists and production people. Apricot Sky seeks to give a voice for new works, playwrights, producers, directors and actors. In addition to our mainstage productions in New Jersey each year, it is the hope of the company to have two New York City productions per year.
The new Board of Directors for Apricot Sky Productions is as follows:
Eric Alter originated ASP and has been the Executive Producer and resident Playwright since inception. Rachel Skrod, straight from 10 years in the New York theatre circuit and experience in excess of 4 years' involvement in ASP will serve as the company's Director of Operations and Marketing, and Sharon Farrell is a new addition this year as the company's Creative Consultant/Artistic Director.
Benefits of company membership include: closed auditions from within the company for Apricot Sky's future productions, the development and production of new works for writers, and directing opportunities for all Apricot Sky projects as well as Apricot Sky's annual one-act play festival. Every year since its inception, Apricot Sky Productions is proud to have produced at least one major production.
Apricot Sky is based in Montclair, New Jersey. Our home is the Grove Street Theater, located at 130 Grove Street (located at The Deron School of NJ) for all New Jersey based productions. This 360 seat theater has been home to over 85 plays since 1999.
In addition to mainstage performances, Apricot Sky is planning classes in playwrighting, directing and producing beginning in the fall of 2012. Please check our website for continued updates on this in the upcoming months.
There are many new and exciting projects in the works for Apricot Sky Productions...we hope you enjoy exploring our up-to-date website and finding the photo archives of past performances as well!
