June 2015 update: Actor's Craft is creating a 50-seat Seventh Avenue Theater in a building purchased at 4900 Seventh Avenue in Downtown Kenosha. In addition, a planned Backstage Gift Shop will sell hand-crafted gift items, with 10% of inventory geared towards gifts for performers and directors, theater, film, dance, music, voice, etc. The goal is to eventually create an on-line shop for the performance gifts. Actor's Craft will continue acting classes/workshops/private sessions for stage and camera, as well as training for Public Speaking and Executive Presence though its Dynamic Executive Program.
