Reflecting on the last year

Our last mainstage production, 2020’s RAGTIME, opened more than a year ago. Little did we know that it would be our final live production for more than 12 months. We are so grateful for the support and encourangement that our community has provided as ACT has transitioned to digital performance and virtual performing arts education amidst the challenges of the pandemic. There is light at the end of the tunnel. We are planning an exciting comeback in 2021 and hope to see you there. Stay tuned for more information and announcements.

ACT Gives Back

As part of ACT’s mission to serve our local community, we launched the ACT Gives Back Program in 2018. During the run of Ragtime, we are collecting night lights for Lisowe’s Lights , which provides night lights for children entering foster care. Started in 2018 by then 7-year-old Saline County resident, Amelia Lisowe, Lisowe’s Lights has now distributed night lights to kids in all 50 states and internationally. Help ACT shine a light during what can be a dark and uncertain time in a child’s life by donating a night light when you visit us for Ragtime!

Donations will be accepted at Argenta Community Theater, February 19-29. Thank you for joining us in giving back to our community.
