Best little community theater around. Top notch shows with the best actors and actresses. Every town needs a community theater like this. Nit only do they put on shows, they offer acting classes from preschool to 102. There are always opportunities to volunteer from backstage, lights and sound, stage, front of house. They also are offering set building classes and others. I can not say enough good things about this theater. If you haven't , go see a show, you will be happy you did.

I would like to start by saying I have encounter many people in this ACT community and they have been wonderful, matter of fact I had a great encounter with some of the ladies that are in the upcoming play 9-5 so great I and 5 of my friends were thrilled to go see it! HOWEVER the woman at the box office who sells tickets was EXTREMELY RUDE when I was in there getting ready to buy a bunch of tickets and sign my son up for acting lessons. Not only did it take he 10 minutes to realize I was there despite me ringing the bell and saying "hello" but she was extremely short with me as I was inquiring about dates that could accommodate multiple people. When asking about acting lessons for my child she didn't even try to help me or give me information and in a rude tone told me to go look on a table for the info, a table that had all out dated information on it literally info from months ago. Needless to say it was a horrible experience and it is unfortunate because I was really hoping to have my son start with ACT. If you are going to be the face of the theater you should really be a little more aware of how rude you come off to the people coming in wanting to support your place of business.

I enjoyed and evening with my in-laws here for the first time for me. They are season ticket holders. I now want to buy season tickets. The production that was just perfect. The play was: Enchanted April - by Matthew Barber Lotty, Rose, Lady Caroline & Mrs. Graves gave us things to pounder, laugh and cry about...they each represented an emotion and idea and a stage of life we as women go through. Costanza - was full of life and added so much to the production as well as Mellersh & Frederick. Mr. Wilding - Acting was very well played, the Character was forgettable. The set was so believeable, I was so impressed with this production bravo.
