We are no longer SmokeyScout Productions . . .
We are now . . .
What’s your tagline?
Press button art is served.
Why oh why?
We have been doing a lot of new types of performances these past few years and we think it’s time for our name to reflect that work—Automatic Arts, a company that creates, produces, and programs original performing arts.
How did it come to this?
We began SmokeyScout Productions by creating and producing comedic evenings of theater, for which a company named after our cats made sense. We have since been creating more varied theatrical experiences. Over the past three years, we have began a presentation series (Nice and Fresh), put up plays, and veered into multimedia/interdisciplinary and dance performance as well. Now we will be programming and producing larger performing arts events for other institutions as well as our own, and we felt it was time for a change. Automatic Arts is what we deliver.
Is your programming changing?
We are still creating original shows and running the Nice and Fresh series. We are also expanding into programming performing arts events for other institutions.
How can I support you?
The Philadelphia Cultural Fund supports us and so can you. It’s easy! Make a tax-deductible donation to our company by clicking here and you can give to us through our fiscal Sponsor, Fractured Atlas (they act as an umbrella nonprofit to small companies like ours). We are still listed as SmokeyScout Productions at Fractured Atlas, and we will still receive the donation under that name.
