Poarch Creek Indians Proudly Supports Alabama Shakespeare Festival

Share this:

The Poarch Creek Indians is a longtime partner of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival (ASF), and continues to support their mission of community building by engaging, entertaining, and inspiring people through theater.

“As a leading investor in ASF’s statewide student-matinee program, SchoolFest, the Poarch Creek Indians and its generous support are essential to enabling students across Alabama to experience the wonder of stories brought to life on ASF’s stages,” said Eve Loeb, Development Director for ASF.  

The Tribe is a major investor in SchoolFest which attracts tens of thousands of students across Alabama each year. Online study guide materials for each play enable teachers to incorporate the plays into students’ curriculum, enriching their classroom experience as well as their experience as audience members in SchoolFest performances. Post-show discussions with cast members allow students to ask questions as they learn more about the art of being an actor and producing plays.

“As the only fully professional producing theater in Alabama, ASF depends on the generosity of foundations, individuals, businesses, and local government, of which the Poarch Creek Indians is a leading investor,” said Loeb.

Each of ASF’s productions are handmade – from the actors who are individually cast for each role, sets and costumes which are handmade in the shops in the theater’s complex, to the directors and designers who envision each play, along with the administrators who carry out the business of operating the theater.

“PCI’s support ultimately affords students the opportunity to experience various cultures, time periods, ideas and people within each play –  broadening their understanding of history, place, and people while sparking their imaginations.”
