Actors Theatre Of Columbus Returns This Summer For Its 40th Anniversary

Actors’ Theatre of Columbus (ATC) is back for its 40th anniversary summer season, “Royals Redux.”

The season will take a look at the sovereignty and subversion of the ruling class and social elites, offering four shows and a collaboration with PAST Productions Columbus at the end of the season.

The show schedule is as follows:

  • Hamlet | May 26-June 19
  • Queen Margaret | July 21-August 14
  • Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities | June 23-July 17
  • August Wilson’s King Hedley II | August 18-September 4

“The plays we are presenting this season examine power structures, power moves, and powerful people,” shared Artistic Director Philip J. Hickman. “How do we make or break change when things go wrong? These plays present fresh, unique takes on stories that are compelling, provocative, romantic, and sometimes very funny.”

If you think you’ve got what it takes to perform with ATC, auditions for the 2022 season will be held in person March 12-13 at the German Village Meeting Haus (588 S. 3rd St., Columbus, OH). Video auditions will also be accepted. To learn more, or schedule an audition time, visit
