Sponsorship at ACT
Our sponsors care tremendously about the cultural landscape of North Texas and are a vital part of the Art Centre Theatre community.
Founded in 1990, ACT operated in the century-old Art Centre Theatre location in historic downtown Plano, Texas. In 2010, the building was sold and we were forced to relocate to West Plano; then moved again after 15 years to East Plano to the location we are in today. Our amazing and dedicated community had helped us moved and made what you see today. We had in early 2020 had some priceless 100-plus years of history - props, sets, costumes, furniture and equipment stolen from us, but that will not deter us from continuing to do our best and give you the best conetent we can offer. Additionally, the new property required extensive renovation and landscaping. Through the efforts of this wonderful community of volunteers, ACT was up and running in only a few months!
Last Year's Highlights
Last year, ACT had
Over 60 main-stage productions
More than 75,000 patrons, students, teachers, artists and staff attracted to West Plano
Over 146 classes, workshops, summer camps and educational opportunities to youth throughout the DFW area
ACT's philosophy is to provide a "home" to all those who care about arts and culture in Collin County-and beyond. ACT offers acting, voice, dance, theatrical skills classes, private instruction, and acting experiences for all who walk through their doors. There's something for everyone: adult, teen, and youth participants and audience members are welcomed to learn, grown, and play at the Art Centre Theatre - to "ACT" for life!
ACT targets over half of our programming to children and youth. Multiple generations performing in one production is not an uncommon sight on our stage! Our focus is getting the entire family involved with the theatre program. In support of community artists, we produce at least two original works from local playwrights and utilize talented individuals from local school districts and colleges as directors and mentors to our youth. Popular local, regional, and even international groups have staged productions at ACT.
ACT is growing by leaps and bounds and we'd love for you to join the excitement! In addition, we are about to undertake a big step: to purchase the building we're presently leasing. While there are plans for future expansion/renovation, the first step is to own the building.
Please consider becoming a sponsor of our community by making a contribution, and help ensure arts and culture will remain alive and well in Collin County! Please don't hesitate to contact me at 972-881-3228 with any questions.
