Arts in the Armed Forces performs theater for all branches of the military at US installations domestically and around the world. Our core program consists of published contemporary American plays and monologues presented by theater-trained professional actors and actresses. We choose plays that feature diverse themes, ages, ethnicities and experiences to create a complex and unique experience for the audience.
Importantly, after each of AITAF’s performances, the actors interact with the audience through a question and answer session as well as a more informal mingling period.
The goal is not simply to provide an enjoyable evening, but to use the powerfully emotional shared experience of live theater to open up conversations capable of bridging the divides between military and civilian, service member and family member, the world of the arts and the world of practical action.
