Atterbury, Jr., Malcolm
Director, teacher and talented composer, died Sunday morning, April 16 in Burbank, California at the age of 65. The son of actress Ellen Hardies Atterbury and veteran stage, television and film actor Malcolm Atterbury, he was born March 24th, 1941 in Schenectady, New York. After graduating Beverly Hills High School, Atterbury attended College of the Pacific in California and Macalester College in Minnesota. In 1966 he returned to Southern California and led a successful career as a script supervisor for various films and television productions. In the 1970's, Atterbury's love of the theater inspired a successful shift from the screen to Artistic Director for the Claremont Playhouse, acting teacher at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and co-founder of Karousel Kids, Inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching children's lives through musical theater. Most recently, Atterbury was a director and set designer for the Group Repertory Theater in North Hollywood. An incredibly talented pianist and composer, Atterbury scored several plays and original works throughout his lifetime. He loved to travel and avidly attended the theater. Atterbury is survived by his daughter Alexis Weaver and grandson, Cole Weaver; his brother Charles Atterbury and sister Jill Atterbury. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday June 18, 2006 at the Garrison Theatre in the Claremont Colleges, 241 East 10th Street, Claremont, CA 91711. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Ellen H. Atterbury and Malcolm Atterbury, Jr. Foundation, 39 E. Calle Crespis, Santa Barbara, CA 93105.
