Encore Atlanta is the official show program for the Fox Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Alliance Theatre and The Atlanta Opera.
The Fox Theatre
November 2017: Love Never Dies

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

In this issue, get up close and personal with ASO bassist Michael Kurth, who has a growing reputation as a composer of both chamber and full orchestral pieces.

October/November 2017: Crossing Delancey
In this issue, learn how the Alliance Theatre — in its 2017/18 season on the road — matches its productions to an off-site venue. In this case, it’s the romantic comedy “Crossing Delancey,” a story about a Jewish Bubbie matchmaking for her favorite granddaughter.
October/November 2017: Hand to God
In this issue, learn why the time is now for the indelicate “Hand to God,” about a church puppet ministry that goes very, very wrong. The Alliance Theatre stages it at Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, where the vibe is just right. And don’t say you haven’t been warned.

The Woodruff Arts Center is committed to reaching families and children in areas where a theater or symphony ticket, or a stroll through an art museum, is economically out of reach. Their main event, called CREATE ATL, is a free Sunday afternoon of art-making, interactive musical story times, hands-on instrument-making, drop-in acting classes and much more. Some 6,000 people attend each festival.
