August 14-30 - Reefer Madness

The musical born from the cult classic B movie of the same name comes to the ACT stage! Community authorities are alarmed over rampant narcotic use - especially marijuana, which causes wild behavior and possible insanity! The high school principal fears for his students! The pushers hold clandestine marijuana parties trying to get kids hooked! Innocent teen sweethearts find themselves caught up in the lunacy! Mature content.

An Original ACT Production
August 28-September 6 - MEAN GIRLS

It's true that in nature only the strong survive--especially for teen girls navigating the unwritten rules of society and fighting the brutal battles of psychological warfare found only in high-school. Difficult for anyone, unless, of course ... you're MEAN. The talented teens of ACT deliver this compelling production.

Book, Music & Lyrics by Barry Wyner
Presented through special arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc.
August 28-September 6 - Calvin Berger

17th century France comes to a present day high school in this lively recreation of the classic story about Cyrano de Bergerac. Calvin Berger, young and comically neurotic about the size of his nose and way too shy to ask out the girl of his dreams decides to communicate with her by way of the handsome new kid in school. This heartfelt musical will have audiences of all ages laughing -- and identifying. The talented teens of ACT deliver this wonderful show.

$15 ($12 for members).
