The Art Theater of Davis is a new community theater group, dedicated to staging modern classics. Our first two productions were Chekhov's Three Sisters and Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. This summer we are planning for three productions to take place during the coming year. To get involved, please contact the Art Theater by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the magic of Facebook.
