ACT ONE of The Synchronicity Season is Here!
September 30 - October 23, 2022
You’ll find the world's most ingenious detective in the oddest of places. And one of them is on Dr. Joan Watson’s last nerve.
The game is most definitely afoot in Kate Hamill’s gender-bending, irreverent, and affectionate take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved mystery classics. This time, in a highly-theatrical adventure comedy, Sherlock Holmes and Watson are at it again solving mysteries full of murder and mayhem, and the challenges of sharing a bathroom sink.
You might just say… it's to die for.
By Kate Hamill
Based on the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Suehyla E. Young
December 9 - 24, 2022
Everyone’s favorite vain and haughty china rabbit is back on the Synchronicity stage. His vest is buttoned tight and his gold pocket watch is set, but who might he be now? Oh, it’s just old Edward Tulane. But just for now. He’ll have to battle the high seas, pass through the hands of a fisherman, befriend a happy hobo, comfort a sick child on his not-so-planned adventure to find his way home.
Based on Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning novel, and adapted by Dwayne Hartford, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane takes us on an unexpected magical journey to discover the transformative powers of love.
Adapted from Kate DiCamillo's book
by Dwayne Hartford
Directed by Mira Hirsch
January 27- February 19, 2023
Once upon a time there was a man with two very beautiful daughters. Written in the style of African Folktales, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters is an expansive, musical retelling of the beloved book. Set under the clear Zimbabwean sky comes a tale of sibling rivalry and tests of character.
Award-winning artist and writer John Steptoe’s rich cultural imagery of Africa and gift for storytelling earned him the Coretta Scott King Award and the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters.
Now for the first time with new music created by Synchronicity’s artistic team, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters is simply magic for the whole family.
Adapted from John Steptoe’s book
by Karen Abbott
With new songs and music by Taryn Janelle and LeRell Ross

WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU OPENING NIGHT!
Act3 Productions is thrilled to announce that live theatre – which you have known, loved and supported at Act3 – is back and our 2022-23 season launches September 23!
Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, the Sandy Springs Arts Foundation and others – including many of you – we weathered the pandemic storm, but now face a serious financial challenge to mount our upcoming season and return to normal.
Producing the quality semi-professional theatre you expect – and we expect of ourselves – takes money. And because we haven’t generated any meaningful ticket sales since February 2020, we simply have very little of that.
We must raise more than $6,500 just to get our first production, Lost in Yonkers, to the stage. We are launching this fundraising campaign with a goal of $20,000 to help cover that plus the operational expenses that keep the lights on, HVAC running, and cleaning products stocked. These average $6,700 a month.
Please support the wonderful work of Act3 today by donating on our website or sending a check to:
Act3 Productions - P.O. Box 76643 - Sandy Springs, GA 30358
Thank you so much for your support. We cannot wait to see you in September!

A youthful new governess arrives to take charge of two children in a remote English manor, only to discover that the last governess and her paramour both died under suspicious circumstances.

THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!
At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. Each of the workers have to make choices on how to move forward if their plant goes under. Shanita has to decide how she'll support herself and her unborn child, Faye has to decide how and where she'll live, and Dez has to figure out how to make his ambitious dreams a reality. Power dynamics shift as their manager Reggie is torn between doing right by his work family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and tense, Skeleton Crew is the third of Dominique Morisseau's Detroit cycle trilogy.

The New South Play Festival is Horizon’s unique celebration of plays from, for, and about the contemporary South. Horizon strives to be a dynamic leader in contemporary theatre in the Southeast, and with the New South Play Festival, Horizon is at the forefront of developing and showcasing new work by Southern writers about who we are today in the New South. The Festival has received significant local and national recognition from the media and funders. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution hailed the Festival as a “crucible [that] feeds writers’ creative fires,” and Creative Loafing touted that it “finds and defines Southern plays.”
The South we explore in the Festival is not the one of the past, but the one of today – in all its diversity and contradiction. We seek out writers and plays that speak to our urban Southern audiences and that expand the world’s view of our cosmopolitan South. “Horizon’s New South Play Festival is about expanding the diversity of voices coming out of the contemporary South,”says Co-Artistic Director Lisa Adler. “The world thinks of the South in terms of civil war and civil rights. We who live here experience a complex place with many perspectives, cultures and people. We hope the New South Play Festival and its writers reflect this true new South.”
