ABQ Theatre Guild Member Honored by American Association of Community Theatre Honors

The American Association of Community Theatre Spotlight Award will be presented to Albuquerque Theatre Guild member Claudia Mathes at the May 11, 2013 annual meeting of the Guild. AACT's Spotlight Awards are presented for local service to community theatre. The Guild nominated Mathes for her over 25 years of tireless work to promote local theatre.

"Since the mid1980s, Claudia has worked with the Albuquerque Little Theatre, the Vortex Theatre, the Albuquerque Civic Light Opera Association, Opera Southwest, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, La Compania de Teatro de Alburquerque, and Theatre-in-the-Making. She has also served as Vice President, Treasurer and Chair of the Unity Committee of the Albuquerque Theatre Guild," says Hugh Witemeyer, ATG President. "She has organized volunteers, coordinated props, stage-managed and served on boards of directors, all with little or no pay, and no wish for recognition. She's truly an indispensible and treasured member of the Albuquerque theatre community most deserving of this award."

The American Association of Community Theatre is a national organization that serves as the authority on the performing arts on the community level. They provide educational resources for community theatres throughout the US as well as all of the USO facilities throughout the world. In 2004, AACT initiated a Spotlight Award to honor community theatre members who have given outstanding service to their local theatre effort based on stringent criteria and nominated by their local theatre groups.
