Who we are
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?'
