Thanks for your interest in XACT! A critical part of determining our theater season is selecting directors for our productions. We’d like to meet you and discuss what you’d like to contribute. The following questions are designed to guide our discussion with you – but please feel free to bring up any other questions you might have. And again – thanks!

2. Why do you want to direct this particular play(s)? Why is this important to you?

3. What specific issues or challenges do you anticipate in mounting this particular play (e.g., unusual casting, costumes, technical, props, etc.)?

4. What special assistance will you require from XACT in mounting this play? (We’ll also discuss with you the resources we normally provide directors for set construction, publicity, technical, etc.)

5. What known schedule constraints do you have and roughly when (what month(s)) would you ideally like to mount this production (e.g., if you coach Little League baseball a spring production may be a bad idea)

6. Would you like the assistance of an assistant director or producer?

The Xenia Area Community Theater (X*ACT) will again offer their signature and unique evening of the play Love Letters Thursday September 6, 2018 at 5:30 pm at Caesar Creek Vineyards.

The play chronicles a 50-year relationship and sometimes-romance between troubled rich girl, Melissa Gardner and the ambitious Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. As Andy, portrayed by Mike Taint and Melissa, played by Mike’s real-life wife, Amy, read their letters aloud, what is created is an engaging, humorous, and touching play. Mike is a veteran of local opera and theater and is a recipient of the Blackburn Award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical. Amy also brings a solid background in local theater to Love Letters and is thrilled to be starring with Mike in X*ACT’s production. “Mike gave me a copy of this play as a gift when we first started dating. Performing it with him is like a dream come true”.

Also available for your enjoyment are the wide assortment of fine wines from The Vineyard’s cash bar. Tickets are $25 for Couples or $15 for Single tickets. Member/Student and Senior discounts are available.

Shirley R. Ellis Memorial Golf Classic for X*ACT

Shirley R. Ellis Memorial  Golf Classic for X*ACT

The time is almost here for the 5th Annual Shirley R. Ellis Memorial Golf Classic being held September 14th again at WGC golf course in Xenia. Please hold the Date!  Registration is at 8:30am and Tee Time is 9:00am. 

First, we want to give you an update on how last year’s outing has impacted The Xenia Area Community Theater and our local community.  On May 11, we awarded two scholarships to Xenia High School graduates. The first Shirley R. Ellis Memorial Theater Scholarship award for $750 was given to Sophia Ensey. Sophia has been an active member of the XHS music community and plans to major in Chemistry at Wittenberg University.  The second scholarship, valued at $500, was awarded to Lyndia Dye. Lyndia participated in Theatre Production at XHS, including Swing Dance and Art. She is attending Sinclair Community College where she will major in Theatre. Congratulations to both Sophia and Lyndia, we wish them all the best as they pursue their dreams

Second, we are thrilled to announce the income from the outing has also gone to support The Lynda & Gerald Troy Scholarship Fund to assist area youth in need with financial support to attend theater and art workshops and camps as well as to offset costs for area youth to attend season productions. Funds from the outing also went to help with facility repairs and the modernization of our theater sales system to better handle sales and financial tracking within the theater operations.  These updates will generate over $2,000 a year in revenue for X*ACT.

These remarkable milestones would not have been possible without you. From all of us in the Ellis family and at X*ACT, thank you so very much for all you’ve done and your support of the Shirley R. Ellis Memorial Golf Classic. We certainly are looking forward to seeing everyone again on September 14 for a fun day of golf, food, drink and prizes. Should you have any questions or need more info, please contact The Xenia Area Community Theater at (937) 372-0516 or through email at info@xeniaact.org.
