The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) is our nonprofit, sister company that serves the young actor, the local schools, and the community with wholesome, educational, high-quality theatre. All of our shows are literature-based so that children can read the book at school within their curriculum and then watch it come to life on stage!

When COVID-19 shut down the country, our spring production was canceled and ACT II lost $50,000 in revenue. That is 40% of our annual income.

Your support through donating or bidding on auction items will give ACT II the funding needed to recover from the impact of COVID-19 and rise above the challenges facing the theatre community! With your help, we will continue to bring the magic of theatre to Colorado Springs!

If you’d like to donate an item or a service to auction, call 719-282-9101 or email Dirctor@ACTcolorado.net.  

We are adding more items each week, so check back again before bidding begins on Black Friday (November 27)!

Virtual Studio Tour

Are you new to ACT?  If so, welcome! We’re glad you’re here. 

I hope you’ll click here to take a “virtual tour” of our studio to see where your student will be taking classes!

Our Goals:
To provide:

  • A wholesome environment with content that is safe and honoring for the whole family.
  • Small class sizes, which allows more direct attention for each student.
  • Professional guidance from experienced and qualified instructors.
  • Instruction that is tailored to challenge both beginners and those with advanced skills.
  • The opportunity to perform in a one-act production. By using multiple, shorter plays, each student is given a more significant role, instead of a select few who get main roles in a single play.

Our Philosophy:
To use the art of theatre to build character, confidence and creativity in the lives of students in the Colorado Springs area. ACT is designed to provide wholesome theatre experiences, skill building, and content to help students develop their character as well as their talent.

Our Curriculum:
During our classes and camps, students will explore many elements of theatre, including character development, movement, voice, audition and improvisational skills. These will be taught through direct instruction, theatre games and exercises, as well as rehearsing and then performing in the Semester Showcase at the end of the semester or camp week.

“Lynn Hamilton and her expert staff at the Academy of Children’s Theatre are developing wonderfully talented young professionals! I recently auditioned a group of their students and was so impressed by their level of talent, as well as their exceptional attitudes and professionalism, that I am now representing many of them in the professional acting and print markets.”
