Solution Unsatifactory by Robert Heinlein
Before Pearl Harbor, before the war in Europe became a World War, Robert A Heinlein considered the consequences of an unrestricted arms race. He foresaw the possibility of a "cold war", a time of tensions and uncertainty with both major powers possessing doomsday weapons and increasingly itchy trigger fingers.
We approached the brink of nuclear war in 1962 and stepped back. Witness now the prescience of the Dean of Science Fiction, who saw it coming in 1941. Follow a chain of events extraordinary, leading to a problem unprecedented and a "Solution Unsatisfactory."
Musical guest: Kyra Goldman! Plus lots more great audio drama!
Tickets are $10.

Collective 51 Marches On!
Each month, some of Atlanta's finest female improvisers perform 90 minutes of short-form games, scenes and things we create because you told us to. We're a rotating cast of performers, with the goal of meeting new people and to see what it's like to have a less male-dominated show not that there's anything wrong with men, of course. We love 'em!
Tickets are $10.00 online and $15.00 at door.

The City of Hapeville Welcomed the Academy Theatre to the Hapeville Performing Arts Center in Fall of 2013! Hapeville Mayor and Council announced at the Happy Days Festival, in late September, that the Academy Theatre group was coming to downtown Hapeville. Artistic Director, Robert Drake enthusiastically informed Hapeville residents at the Happy Days Festival that the Academy Theatre will have an approximate 99-seat black box theatre that will host performances and classes, bringing an artistic vitality to downtown!
The City of Hapeville, owner of The Hapeville Performing Arts Center, located at 599 and 597 N. Central Avenue, purchased the downtown buildings as part of its Economic Development efforts. As part of its downtown revitalization efforts, the City recently leased the Hapeville Performing Arts Center to the Academy Theatre. The current space at 599 N. Central Avenue has been transformed into a temporary theatre with seating for approximately 85.
Planning is underway for design and build-out of an expanded and more permanent home for the Academy Theatre to include both the 599 and 597 N. Central Avenue properties and to accommodate more visitors. Visit the City website: www.hapeville.org for updates on the renovations.
