APF continues the tradition of using theatre to build community through great stories, dramatic ideas, and on-going conversations. Great theatre always has something to say, moving the audience to a richer understanding of the world around them.  APF continues this tradition through quality productions and with The Buzzz following every performance. The Buzzz brings the community together to create on-going conservations about the issues discovered in the play, exploring the work with the actors and production staff.
