Algonquin Theater delighted to once again host live performances

The Algonquin Theater is bustling with activity, and the staff couldn’t be more excited to welcome back the community for live music and theatre.

Having already showcased the talents of local theater company Monarch Performing Arts Studio with their production of Leasethe return of Reel Alternatives films and Algonquin Outfitters’ presentation of the Banff Mountain Film Festival among others, the theater is in full swing with shows and events all summer long.

“We are thrilled to welcome our friends back to the Algonquin Theater to enjoy this year’s lineup of concerts, films, musicals and events,” said Algonquin Theater Manager Matt Huddlestone.

The theater also hosts the Huntsville Festival of the Arts (HfA) for its 30th anniversary season.

“The Huntsville Arts Festival has been with us since the theater opened in 2005,” says Huddlestone. “Reopening just in time to help them celebrate their amazing 30th anniversary is amazing.”

“While we also perform elsewhere, we consider the Algonquin Theater to be our home base,” says Dan Watson, HfA’s General Manager. “It’s a very important partnership that we have together. It’s a beautiful theater and it allows us to bring in some truly amazing world class performers… if you look at other theaters in other cities our size, the Algonquin Theater really punches above its weight. It’s amazing how busy he is and what a great reputation he has.

The theme of the Festival this season is connection, and the organization is excited to reconnect with its fans and “the spaces we’ve known and loved”, Watson said. “It’s really exciting to have the number of shows we have there, to welcome our audience back to the Algonquin Theater again.”

Even with a full season ahead, you have the option of reserving the theater space for your own private or community event. Want to show a film with friends? Or do a jam session on stage? How about an employee appreciation event with a local musician? Theater can do anything.

“The Algonquin Theater is a real community place,” says Huddlestone. “From youth and school groups to local business meetings to non-profit fundraisers, the theater is a versatile space that can meet everyone’s needs.
