Horizon Theatre Company is one of Atlanta’s longest-running small theaters, with a devoted following of season ticketholders. Located in the heart of Little Five Points, it is convenient to several local restaurants like The Vortex, but if you skip dinner before the show you can always indulge in one of the theater’s giant cookie-dough cookies. This company is known for comedic favorites like The Waffle Palace and David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries; these productions return year after year and are always popular. The shows also include offerings for the younger set like Madeline’s Christmas, as well as more adult-focused works by local writers, like Third Country and The Book Club Play. Seating is general admission, with certain sections reserved for subscribers. But the Horizon Theatre Company is intimate enough that there really isn’t a bad spot in the house.

Synchronicity annually performs three contemporary plays for adults and two or three family-friendly musicals as part of its commitment to raise the local and national profile of Atlanta theatre. Kicking off its Bold Voices series is The Storytelling Ability of a Boy , which tells the dark story of an English teacher who gets overly involved in the lives of two of her students. Performances run at 7 Stages Theatre through November 21, when the play will be returned to a dramaturgical library to spend the holidays with its leather-bound family. The children's classic, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, will ensnare the hearts of cynical holiday audiences from December 11, 2010, through January 2, 2011, at the Balzer Theater at Herren's. See the calendar for all show dates and times.

At Out of Hand Theater, the audience isn't just a passive crowd—the audience is a collaborator. Whether engaging their fans with new plays from local writers or staging elaborate public art performances such as The Break Up—a two-minute romance between an actor and anyone else—Out of Hand Theater makes the audience carry their emotional weight. They also host the Game, an interactive scavenger hunt that sends participants off to crack codes and solve puzzles all over the city. The Game is never quite what it seems: clues participants seek might be hiding in a realistic staged scene or on a strangely animated-looking statue.
