Staying connected and in community during this unprecedented time - 
The story of the ghost light: Created as a tool to keep folks safe - from falling off the stage, mainly - the ghost light has become a metaphor for theatre's ability to be light in the darkness, understanding in an incomprehensible world.

The ghost light on our Mainstage shines on!

Thank You!

Thank you to all of the individuals and families who donated their ticket refunds for shows we had to cancel, and to everyone else who has so generously donated to ACT during our closure. We are so grateful to know how much our community believes in what we do!

Classes are Moving Online!

Your Support is Needed! 

Theatre is about connection. That connection has never been more important for the children in our education programs who can feel as isolated as any of us right now. Faced with a shut down, we immediately set about finding a way to continue these programs online for our kids. The only reason we are able to do this is because of the generosity of donors and community members like you.

If you value ACT’s programs and can help us, please consider making a donation. Your gift, no matter the amount, will help us keep these programs going and continue to create new ways for youth to connect through theatre, even (and perhaps especially) when we cannot be in the same space.
