An Original ACT Adaptation
With Original Songs and Music
May 26-Jun 4:      Snow White the Musical

In this unique musical adaptation of the timeless story of the beautiful Snow White, living in refuge in the forest home of the dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, the Evil Queen, we meet some--unique--characters: Simon the Jester, who (regretfully) serves the Evil Queen; Nanny Knick Knack, a loving Aunt-like figure who loves Snow White with all her heart and longs for her to be out from under the command of the Queen; the Fairies, who live up to their reputation as good-will ambassadors, imparting their wisdom to all in need. Together with the Dwarfs, they use their powers and skills to protect their beloved Princess from the Evil Queen's jealousy and her desire to be "the fairest of the land" at any cost to Snow White.

May 26-Jun 4:      Welcome Back, Kotter

Who says you can't go home again? Travel with us back to those glorious '70s where Gabe Kotter, a wisecracking (but also wise) teacher, returns to Buchanan High (his old school) in Brooklyn, to take on the daunting task of teaching a remedial class to an ethnically and culturally diverse group of misfits known as the Sweathogs. Little do the Sweathogs know that Kotter was a founding member! Kotter sees their potential, but can they they be taught? And what might Kotter himself learn? Welcome back to the the love and laughter in room 11, where school can be made cool again.

A Kelz Productions Presentation
Jun 9-11:      Who Has Your Attention?

Michael Kelly premiered his powerful drama "Love Me Through the Bad" last year at ACT, and is returning with his newest, thought-provoking show, "Who Has Your Attention?".

Chris and Destiny are living the dream! Young, newly engaged, Chris has just been drafted by the NFL, and Destiny finished her nursing degree and is looking forward to a challenging career. It looks ideal, but we all know appearances can be deceiving. Chris finds himself in a struggle with his Christian ideals, allowing influential people to have him act in ways he knows he shouldn't, and Destiny finds that reaching a balance in life is not as easy as she imagined. The stress on their engagement increases; with their attention torn in so many directions, could it be that it's already too late?

$15. ACT member discounts apply if you buy in advance using our online system. $20 at the door.
