UUCA has a rich tradition of involvement in the arts, from its exciting music program to its art gallery to its historic Underground Theatre. Now, under the oversight of the Performing Arts Coordinating Team (PACT), UUCA is sponsoring a lively series of performing arts events in its intimate Underground Theatre. A monthly coffeehouse features guest musicians from a wide variety of musical genres. A monthly spoken word series spotlights poets and authors reading from their work and includes an open mic session for local spoken word artists. Occasional evenings of improv provide additional performance opportunities. In addition, PACT presents exciting theatre that speaks to the spiritual and social concerns of our community, with two to three major productions each year. Workshops in playwriting and acting are offered to provide support for future performances. PACT welcomes proposals for productions, readings, etc. Anyone wishing to produce a play or other performance event is invited to submit a proposal for consideration using the Proposal for Play Production form or the Proposal for Performance form. Artists interested in performing at the Underground Coffeehouse should submit the coffeehouse performance form. For further information, please contact John Clum, Chair of the Performing Arts Coordinating Team (jclum1941@gmail.com). Questions about the coffeehouse should be sent to coffeehouse@uuca.org.
