24 Years of Service to the Community
“ I had no idea there are always dozens of shows to see! Your website is one of the most complete and easiest to use in the city.”
“ The process and organization of the unified auditions I participated in was one of the smoothest, most professional I have ever attended.”
“ AtlanTIX is the only place I buy my tickets now. I save money and your staff are the best.”
Atlanta Performs (AP) celebrates over two decades as an umbrella service organization that supports and promotes greater Atlanta's vibrant, culturally diverse theatre, dance, music and film arts community.
AP grew from an organization called “OOPS,” the Off Off Peachtree Syndicate. In 1984, OOPS was incorporated as the Atlanta Coalition of Theatres, which began conducting business as Atlanta Coalition of Performing Arts in 2000. Gradually the Atlanta Coalition of Theatres became the Atlanta Coalition of Performing Arts (ACPA). After much consideration, the organization simplified it's name to Atlanta Performs (AP). Over the years, AP has grown from 32 founding members to more than 170 Partner and Associate organizations from 16 greater Atlanta counties, and over 400 individual member performing arts professionals.
Annually, over 500,000 people are served in-person and online by AP through a wide variety of programs and services. Those include AtlantaPerforms.com and industry-focused AtlantaPerforms.biz, an AtlanTIX half-price ticket booth, and the annual Unified Auditions. AP’s ticket services are the largest single resource of earned income for the nonprofit performing arts industry of Georgia.
A strong arts and cultural community is a hallmark of a true world-class city. By providing a nurturing environment for theatre, dance, music and film arts, the Atlanta Coalition of Performing Arts plays a vital role in greater Atlanta’s cultural and community development. You can too! The performing arts enrich our lives, nourishing our minds and spirits with the splendid diversity of humanity. See a show and celebrate life!
