A note from TNT’s Executive Director

As I enter my fourth season with TNT, as Executive Director, I have to THANK YOU, our patrons! You have continued to support TNT, advised me, offered me your ideas, and you have made our theatre a better place — a place where YOU want to be. Due to your support in the 2018-2019 season we were able to do the following:


  • Produce FIVE ALABAMA PREMIERES: The Book of Merman, Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up, Fun Home, Morningside and The Royale.

  • Present our third installment of the “Written in the South” series, which is growing in popularity every year and provides a platform for a Southern voice.

  • Provide educational opportunities for local school students. With the help of grant funding, the actresses from Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up performed for a theatre class at ASFA and held audition prep classes at Clay-Chalkville High School, and students from surrounding schools came to TNT to see the show for free.

  • Host Topher Payne, the playwright of Morningside, for opening night of his play. He stayed for the post-performance party and was gracious enough to pose for photos and sign autographs after the show.

  • Give 40 increasingly diverse actors and actresses, 18 of whom were new to us, an opportunity to perform on the TNT stage.

  • Make some essential equipment purchases, allowing us to not just
    sustain our offerings, but to grow them.

  • Collaborate with AIDS Alabama in November and March to bring
    audiences two evenings of storytelling to benefit this nonprofit
    organization. We plan to keep this tradition going into Season 34.

  • Bring legendary female impersonator Varla Jean Merman to TNT
    on June 1 to perform Under A Big Top as part of our 2019-2020
    season announcement celebration. Thank you to Louise and John
    Beard for making special appearances like these possible!!!
