About Our Productions

ACT performs shows appropriate for all ages as well as those oriented toward more mature audiences. If you have any questions about the content of one of our productions please contact us.

Our shows are original productions by ACT staff and students unless otherwise noted.


Tickets may be purchased online or at the ACT box office. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. ACT reserves the right to cancel a performance if there are less than 25 tickets sold. Member discounts are valid only for online purchases and not at the door.

Armed Forces, PISD, City of Plano, and Hotel Discount Tickets at the Door:
Patrons and the employees of the fabulous Plano hotels and motels are entitled to a 10% discount off any tickets purchased at the door; show a receipt or current pay stub. (Receipts must be dated within 15 days of the show date.)

Online Ticketing

Through our online ticketing system you can reserve your seats, print your tickets and pay with a credit card. Tickets are not available online one hour before the performance.

Our community theatre relies on our cast members to spread the word and sell tickets to their shows - contact your favorite cast member before purchase as there may be a discount available, and also be sure to specify their name when you purchase the ticket.

Even if you leave your tickets at home, your name will be on the door list. We will be waiting for you!

Should you encounter difficulty completing your purchase online please send an e-mail to Be sure to include your name and phone number as well as the performance in which you're interested. You will be contacted via phone for your credit card information to complete the purchase. Do not include your credit card information in the e-mail.

Common Issues:

Discount code not accepted - shows are occasionally offered with a special cast discount code. If you have been provided a discount code you must purchase the tickets one week before the show opens (an incentive to purchase your tickets early!).

Could not print receipt - Check the e-mail that you used when registering with the ticketing system - a copy of the tickets are sent to that address. You can log back into the ticketing system and reprint your receipt and tickets. We will have your reservation at the door, so you can just bring ID and you will be good to go.

The system keeps erroring off - common errors are from the credit card expiration date format - it should be entered 'mmyy'. Some cards are now giving an exact day, please use only the month and year.

The unforgettable lyrics of Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber bring this ancient story recorded in the "Book of Genesis" to life. Jacob's clearly favorite son Joseph is the cause of much jealousy with his 11 other sons, so much so they conspire to sell him into slavery, convincing their father he has been killed. Joseph, now a slave in Egypt but gifted with God's power to interpret dreams works his way into the trust of the wealthy Potiphar, but is imprisoned after he turns down the proposition of Potiphar's wife. Through a series of miraculous events, Joseph's gifts lead him to power under the Pharaoh, and a confrontation with his treacherous brothers. A timeless story with brilliant music leave few who see this show unchanged!

Dec 2-4:      Love Me Through the Bad

Tim and Jackie have been happy together for going on seven months, when Jackie decides it would be nice for Tim to meet her family. Tim is not particularly keen on the idea, but Jackie insists and he agrees - and doesn't realize what he's walking into. Jackie's parents were brutally murdered in front of her brothers, and they have been living with her uncle ever since. It's not your typical "boy meets girl's parents" story; there's a strain on new love, what with all the baggage even a "normal" family can bring to a relationship. Mature themes.

Jan 20-29:      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.
