The Jac Alder Legacy Fund
With his winning personality and that magnificent smile, Jac Alder reigned as a major force in the Dallas theatre scene. From the founding of his beloved Theatre Three in 1961 to his death in 2015, Jac worked tirelessly to establish Theatre Three as a respected member of the national theater landscape while discovering and attracting remarkable talent to North Texas. His theater-in-the-round welcomed works by young African-American playwrights August Wilson and Ossie Davis. It nurtured future Pulitzer Prize winners Beth Henley, Doug Wright, and Tracey Letts. And, it introduced countless acclaimed actors, designers, and directors.
To honor this artistic giant and preserve his vision, Theatre Three’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the establishment The Jac Alder Legacy Fund. This fund will help secure the future of Theatre Three by funding capital needs and investing in key leadership. Theatre Three was Jac’s life, and his life’s work. It will live on with your help!
