It’s been 25 years since we’ve taken a summer off, but that doesn’t mean you need to.  Sit back and enjoy performances from some of your favorite actors, clips from your favorite ATF shows, concerts of hit ATF productions, short and feature films from our past film festivals, and even a few full performances from the ATF vault!  ATF is here for you, On Demand!

But watching the show is only part of the fun – we still want you to be able to relive the full theatre-going experience, and that means going out to a delicious local restaurant or shopping at a favorite local shop before seeing an ATF show.  So with every ATF On Demand subscription, we’re throwing in a gift card!

HOW DO I WATCH?  AND DO I REALLY GET A GIFT CARD?!!!

It’s simple and YES!  Just make a one-time donation of $50 or more by clicking the donate button below to access ATF on Demand.  $25 of your donation will be used to purchase a gift card from a local restaurant or shop.  For example, if you donate $100, then $75 will go to ATF and $25 will be used to purchase a gift card that will be mailed to you.

Please consider donating the cost of a single ticket (approx. $50), the cost of a flex pass ($99-$155), a stretch gift beyond that amount, or simply whatever you can at this time.  Your donation will help us continue to support our artists and staff, handle the notable loss of income, and weather the storm so that we can be prepared to perform for you LIVE when it is safe to do so.  And it’s helping to drive business to our local economy at the same time!  #winwin

WHAT CONTENT IS AVAILABLE?

The content available on ATF On Demand is made possible through the permission and generous support of our alumni playwrights and filmmakers.  In many cases, these shows or clips were never written or directed to be watched in this manner, so we appreciate their willingness to allow us to share them.  Much of our content, like recordings of mainstage productions, is unavailable for this format due to restrictions with the actors’ union (AEA).  Please note that, in most cases, we are restricted from sharing full productions.  What’s below is curated content that meets the limitations of what we have filmed and what we are permitted to share.  It will be available during the originally planned dates of our summer season: June 12-Aug. 7, 2020.
