We believe strongly in giving back and regularly work with a variety of local charities and organizations in our area. Each month we sponsor a different group and our community responds, providing donations of materials and cash, volunteer hours, etc.
Giving Back to Our Community
Sharing the Arts
ACT is keenly interested in bringing the arts to schools, community centers, daycares, retirment facilites, churches and any organization that want to expose their members to the arts. ACT has many low-cost or free programs that allow us to travel to you to entertain your audiences in house.
Additionally, ACT routinely works with local family shelters to sponsor tickets and concessions for kids and parents that find themselves in difficult times. ACT community members absorb the costs and provide a fun few hours away from their troubles.
We sponsor at our location or yours - sing-alongs for all ages kids-to-seniors, story dramas, and interactive workshops are all part of the fun!
Call the theatre for details on these and other offerings.
Staging a wide variety of shows for kids and grown-ups, camps, events, activities, are but a small part of the vibrant ACT community.
