AEDC’s Chair Susan Carol Davis shares that Curtain Up! will provide a festive, casual atmosphere for a
wide variety of theatre enthusiasts in Denton County and surrounding North Texas communities. Davis says, “Curtain Up! gives us an opportunity to not only celebrate the excellent stage productions happening in North Texas but also, learn something new about options for working with the Actors’ Equity Association, a U.S. labor union founded in 1913, and representing more than 50,000 actors and stage managers.”
