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 is celebrating its 25th anniversary. To read more about the history of ACT and it's beginnings : 'What's in a name?'

Upcoming shows

SHOWS AT THE WATERMARK DEC 10-12 POSTPONED TO DEC 27, 28, 29. 'It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play' presented in partnership with the Confederation Centre of the Arts! This classic film comes to life, bringing holiday spirit to the stage on December 3, 4, 5 and 10, 11, 12 at the Watermark Theatre (postponed) with additional matinees on Saturdays. Come and visit our 'radio stage' to see and hear the story of George Bailey, who learns the value of friendship on Christmas Eve.  The Smith Team of RBC Dominion Securities is the title sponsor for this event.

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. ACT’s  production of this ‘farce to end all farces’ will  (fingers crossed) appear sometime on stage in 2020. Tickets are $25 and will available eventually at and at the Florence Simmons box office.
