Open House Success!

Thank you to everyone who came to our Open House Holiday Shindig last night! It was such a success. In attendance were some of our old friends, loyal followers, and some new faces too. We were excited to meet members of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in Asheville! Thanks to those who provided treats for the event, and a special thank you to Laura Davis and Steph Mann who have put in countless hours to make our space what it is. Love love love.

It's been a while, folks, but at least it's been for a good reason! We've acquired a new building and have been restoring it and turning it into the awesome little cozy place that it is now. We hope to use this for rehearsals and some small performances of our own, but we hope that YOU will use it too. This West Asheville space is available to rent by the hour for workshops, rehearsals, classes, events, and more. Contact for more information.

With Our First Birthday Brings A New Vision...

As our first birthday approaches, we have been reflecting on the future of Anam Cara Theatre. In the beginning, we knew we wanted to set ourselves apart from other theatre companies in the area by focusing on presenting theatre with a conscience. As the year progressed, and we made more connections in this amazing community, we realized the need to incorporate other aspects of artistic expression into our company. Thus, we revised our mission statement in order to take our theatre company beyond the traditional level. Our focus now is not only to make socially conscious theatre but to do so while including visual art, spoken word, and original music & choreography by local artists into our productions.

Our first endeavor into this fusion of the arts includes an upcoming event on March 13th at The Garage at Biltmore. This event will feature local musicians, a silent local wares & art auction featuring established as well as up and coming local artists, and even a local dj to spin the night away. We’re hoping this event gets people excited about our future productions as much as we are. Stay tuned for more details on this amazing event!
