Churning out theatrical productions since 1954, Abilene Community Theatre presents the final show of its 57th season, Tom, Dick & Harry. This farcical tale depicts the misadventures of three brothers, one of whom is trying to adopt a baby with his wife while trying to keep his two unreliable, mischievous, quasi-criminal brothers at bay. Making its premiere in London's West End six years ago, Tom, Dick & Harry's Texas production showcases nine local residents in its acting roles, with other resident volunteers donning the mantles of set design, prop design, and after-party cake design. Abilene Community Theatre promotes an inclusive and active community-art atmosphere. Its dramatic impresarios publish a regular podcast, Backstage Pass, which airs interviews with artists, actors, and directors, allowing patrons a glimpse behind the curtain to current shows. Galvanizing the next generation of playwrights, Abilene Community Theatre's summer workshops inspire children and teens to become the next Shakespeare, Molière, or unaccredited writer for a pilot about telepathic criminal investigators.
