Jan 20-Feb 5:      DREAMGIRLS

The stunning show about a time in American musical history when rhythm and blues blended with other styles of popular music, creating a new American sound. In Act One we relive the fabulous sixties, when we were still screaming at Elvis and listening to the Beatles, but were dancing to the new sound of groups like The Supremes, The Marvelettes, The Temptations and The Shirelles. DREAMGIRLS also explores the the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry--the business part of show business--that made possible this cultural phenomenon. Act Two brings us to the creation and the arrival of disco (though the term itself is never used). This show brilliantly examines a musical contribution to America of such importance that we are only now beginning to understand it.

Feb 3-11:      The Vagina Monologues

Based on interviews conducted with women from all over the world, Eve Ensler's award-winning play is a hilarious and deeply poignant collection of stories that gives voice to a chorus of common experiences and feelings once considered taboo. A thoughtful look at the female experience, with an unblinking look at topics such as sex, love, rape, birth, and the vagina as an expression of female individuality, the popular show manages to be entertaining without being trite, political without being offensive.

There will be special benefit performance on Thursday, February 9, at 7:30. All proceeds from this performance will go to My Friends House in Plano, a shelter for familes struggling with domestic issues.

Feb 17-26:      Trust Fund Baby

ACT is delighted to bring to the public for the first time this new musical by Daniel Turner. Richard Morgan is living the good life as a spoiled trust fund baby with his trophy wife and house of servants. After being mistreated and under-payed for years, Morgan's accountant and the accountant's right-hand man plot to steal his fortune for themselves. After losing his money, possessions, and even his wife, Morgan is left with nothing. He is down, but most certainly not out, as his house staff decide they will help him acclimate to the real world. Then, they hatch a plan to get back the money that was taken. But do they go too far in their quest for vengeance and justice?

Tropes! Wildebeests! Murder most foul?!?

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