(a community theatre)
Welcome To ACT
ACT was created in 1995 by a group of dedicated, theatre-loving individuals on Prince Edward Island. Since then it has presented top-quality productions, including blockbuster musicals (Jesus Christ Superstar, HMS Pinafore, The Rocky Horror Show, Sweeney Todd); strong dramas (The Crucible, Julius Caesar, Waiting for Godot, Macbeth); classics (The Mousetrap, The School for Scandal); delightful comedies (Noises Off, Lend Me a Tenor, Midsummer Night's Dream); and much more. In 2020, ACT celebrated its 25th anniversary. To read more about the history of ACT and it's beginnings : 'What's in a name?'
News and Events
Thank you to all the patrons who came out to see Noises Off. After being postponed for more than three years due to COVID-19, ACT brought this show to the stage May 5-13, 2023. For a farce about how things can go awry in theatre, what better example of life imitating art! Written by Michael Frayn, this show presents the madcap misadventures of a touring troupe of actors, their bitingly sarcastic director, and their overworked crew as they attempt to rehearse and perform a flop of a farce entitled 'Nothing On'.
