Staying connected and in community during this unprecedented time - 
As you know, live theatre and in-person education simply aren't compatible with the social distancing response to the COVID-19 crisis. But that's not stopping us from connecting with each other during this time of isolation.

We'll keep you in the loop about what's happening at ACT (virtually!) while we wait for the day that we can reopen our actual doors.

#ACTHappyHour Takes Off

"Keeps my heart happy to hear some theatre while all this crazy madness is going on. Can't wait for the day that the doors are open again and we get to see another show. Keep this up." - Facebook comment

Weekly Spotlight: #ACTHappyHour

Keeping the boredom at bay and keeping creativity pumping is no easy task. But we've found a way to do both!  

On our Facebook page at 5:00 pm, every Monday through Friday, we host a watch party of videos that people in our community have tagged #ACTHappyHour. Anyone can share a video - whether or not they've been on the ACT stage - and anyone can join in for the watch party. It's been so exciting to "see" friends in their homes and "meet" new people in our community, all of whom are sharing a little piece of their hearts during this unprecedented time.

Can't make it at 5:00? You can watch past parties on our page anytime!

What Else is Happening?

  • On ZOOM:
    • We are continuing rehearsals for Little Women - we've just moved them online!
    •  We're hosting weekly classes for Frozen Jr. and Peter Pan Jr. - a challenge for sure, but one we're up for!
  • On Instagram:
    • Costume Designer/Shop Manager Carina Lopez took over our Instagram account today to show her work on Little Women costumes! 

Your Support is Needed! 

To make it through this difficult time, ACT is going to need your help. While we can and will reduce our operating costs during this closure, there are some expenditures that remain inevitable.
  • Buy a gift certificate! An ACT gift certificate can be used for any ACT Mainstage Season show. You can use the gift certificate yourself, or buy one for a friend!
  • Buy a London Raffle ticket! We know no one's jetting off to London anytime soon, so we've amended the raffle. The winner can choose either the trip (you'll have until Dec 2021 to use it) OR take the cash value of the prize!
  • Become a sustaining donor! A monthly recurring donation is so helpful!
