Melody Pratt said the entire family will be able to enjoy the type of stage productions the new Douglasville-based All Community Theatre company will present.

“Our productions will be ones suited for the entire family, from [ages] 4 to 104, whether they are a great-grandparent or a great-grandchild,” said Pratt, the group’s founder.

All Community is now preparing for its second production, “Insane with Power,” scheduled April 25 through 27 and May 2 through 4. Auditions were held last week.

The theater company has been together for five months and staged its first production, “An American Teen in the City of David,” during the Christmas holidays, which was a huge success, Pratt said.

Pratt, who has also starred in productions for another local stage production company, the Community Alliance of Stage and Theater, said All Community’s productions are presented at the Old Douglasville Conference Center, 6701 Church St.

Pratt emphasized the All Community and Community Alliance theater groups are in no way competing with one another and, in fact, assist one another on many occasions with auditions and other elements of stage productions.

“Where CAST does more dinner theater stage productions in Hiram and Villa Rica that have themes suited more for adult audiences, we do more family-oriented, non-dinner theater stage productions,” Pratt said.

“Our productions could even have roles for children as young as 4.”

In addition, where Community Alliance productions have an admission charge, All Community does not charge admission, although they appreciate any donations which are taken at the door.

“All net proceeds we receive from our productions goes to charity,” Pratt said.

“Insane with Power,” she said, is a family comedy which is set in a mental institution where all the patients believe they are super heroes.

“A reporter goes into the institution to interview the patients and the result is hilarious,” Pratt said.

Although All Community may be the new “kid in town” with regard to stage productions in Douglas County, Pratt asks that patrons of such entertainment take the time to check the company out.
