The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II)

The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) is a non-profit theatre that brings literature to life through the magic of theatre with wholesome, educational, high-quality productions for the local schools and the community. ACT II provides young actors with a safe environment where they can grow in their character and talent.

Bringing Literature to Life

All of our plays are based upon literature so that the school children can read the book and learn from it at school, then attend our show and watch the book come alive on stage. School children and families attending our shows laugh and cheer as they are immersed in the story. 

"To serve the young actor, the local schools, and the community with wholesome, educational, high-quality theatre."
