Do Your Part: #MaskUpForTheArts

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that over 4000 ticket sales to ACT’s 2019-2020 season did not occur. This revenue helps support every aspect of our work, on and offstage. The performing arts community is struggling worldwide, and our Central Arkansas community is part of that struggle. But, we are adapting, evolving, and creating new ways to reach our audiences, students and artists, and will come back stronger than ever.
You can help slow the spread and support Argenta Community Theater by donating the cost of a single show ticket – $30. For every donation of $30 or more recieved between August 7th and August 17th, we’ll send you your very own theater-themed cloth mask!
Help do your part to slow the spread of the virus, AND support the performing arts in our community. Join us to #maskupforthearts

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.
