FACT is seeking more people to participate in our next Reader's Theatre event, which will consist of three humorous plays performed on January 19 & 20. For more information, contact Benjamin Whitcomb at email@example.com
THAT'S A WRAP!
Thank you so much to everyone who attended our production of "Into the Woods!" We enjoyed every 'moment!'
Thank you to our sponsors:
And a special thank you to Papa Brunk's Bakery for providing the delicious cookies for all 4 shows, and to Jefferson High School for hosting us!

A million thanks to everyone who came out to support YouthFACT's production of Blather, Blarney, and Balderdash!
The kids had so much fun and we had a great turnout for all three performances. Thank you to everyone who attended and to those who helped this production become a reality! We hope you always carry a little piece of the 'magic of storytelling' in your hearts.

FACT partners with Spark Good
FACT is excited to announce that you can now find us on Spark Good, Walmart's digital giving platform!
Spark Good makes it easier for you to support your favorite nonprofit organization in two ways:
1) Donating change by rounding up your purchase at checkout on the Walmart app/website.
2) Donating products from a nonprofit's registry and having the items shipped directly to them.
And for an extra bonus, Walmart is matching Round Up donations 2:1 in March! Those small donations can quickly add up to make a big impact on our organization.
It's free to sign up! Visit Walmart.com/SparkGood and enter Fort Atkinson Community Theatre in the "Find a local charity" search box.
FACT is continually grateful for the support we receive from our community, family, and friends, in our pursuit of providing quality community theatre for all.
It's scholarship season! FACT offers two scholarships annually: the Comstock Memorial Scholarship (for FAHS graduates majoring in theatre or related fields) and the Bob Horton Memorial Scholarship (for students in any major who have participated in FACT or YouthFACT productions).
Applications from Fort Atkinson High School students are collected through the school. Students from other high schools who wish to apply for the Horton Scholarship may use this form: https://forms.gle/jzqq3UNtay1X6dvx6.
Application deadline: March 1, 2023.
Don Hinz was a founding member of FACT, then called Fort Atkinson Little Theatre. He acted in many productions, including Waltz of the Toreodores, 1776, Medea, Midsummer Night's Dream, Mornings at Seven, The Dining Room, and Our Town. There were likely many more, as he was involved with FACT for 41 years. He also directed productions, most notably, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Miracle Worker. After retiring from teaching, he moved on to productions at The Fireside and a national touring company of A Christmas Carol.
Sadly, Don passed away in March 2022. A memorial fund has been established in his name to honor this wonderful man and his contributions to FACT.
