The Alban Arts Academy has been providing theatrical and cultural education to children and adults in Appalachia since 2009. The Academy began with five students and in its thirteen-year history more than two thousand students have taken part in its educational opportunities. When the Academy began it shared space in the Alban Theater in St. Albans, West Virginia. Due to the growth of the Academy, a local church facility was purchased in 2021. The Academy currently owes $12,000 on the new facility. The Academy has multiple classrooms, a workshop, and an auditorium where student productions are presented. As a result of the purchase, the curriculum has been expanded, offering four semesters, summer workshops, and camps, which will increase enrollment. The Academy offers numerous classes in Acting, Directing, Stage Craft, Stage Make- up, Play Writing, Stage Combat, Improv and other theatrical skills. The Academy has had students from Kanawha, Putnam, Lincoln, Boone, Jackson, Wayne, Clay and Cabell Counties of West Virginia who participate on campus. Virtual classes have drawn students from Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. The Founder of the Alban Arts Academy is aware that many are unable to afford such a robust extra-curricular program and would like to make it available for all. His goal is to be fiscally responsible while providing cultural and educational opportunities. As a result of his vision the Founder’s Campaign was developed. Gifts can be designated for facility needs, which ensures the Academy’s continued existence or for scholarships ($200 value) which is an investment in an individual student. As an act of commitment to the Academy the Founder has donated money and time towards the campaign as well. Your gift is an investment in the lives of aspiring artists by providing a home for the arts, the development of the individual student, and the cultural enrichment of the community.Learn More
