What People are Saying About The A.C.T.

Your productions have made such a big difference my son's life. He has found something that he truly loves and where he feels fully accepted. He is so happy when he is involved and I want to thank you for giving him a chance and letting him shine.
-Kirstin (Parent)

I just wanted to thank you for making my daughter's first real theatre experience so wonderful. She had a great time and learned so much from the experience. You are a great team that clearly strikes well the delicate balance of getting kids to focus and have fun at the same time. The result was a tiny miracle on stage.  It was delightful to behold!!
-Nancy (Parent)

I am so thankful for you guys and your awesomeness. My daughter is having a ball, learning so much, and feeling utterly supported by you all. She so looks forward to Thursday afternoons, and I am so grateful for that. I am, again, also thankful for your commitment and organization. As a parent it means EVERYTHING.
-Meghan (Parent)

A huge thank you to The A.C.T. for keeping your rehearsals so organized and productive. The kids are having a blast and best of all we will all get a good nights’ sleep during this busy (tech) week because you are all working hard to keep us focused — much appreciated by all the parents!!
-Jen (Parent)

I want to thank you for orchestrating such a wonderful show. Watching my daughter on stage made me realize how empowering theater can be for kids' self confidence, not to mention the sense of community that the kids (and parents) develop as they help make the show come together. You are very talented at what you do, and I thank you for helping to make these kids really shine.
-Michelle (Parent)

I just want to thank you for such a powerful experience for my daughter. This was her first time acting in a play and she learned so much. She felt the passion behind your vision and worked to meet your and her own expectations. She loved being a part of something great and felt the confidence that comes from working hard and getting positive results. Thank you for your time, energy and devotion to this play and cast. We will definitely be signing up again! The play and experience was amazing!
-Lauren (Parent)

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work the past three months, as always you guys were absolutely awesome!  We feel like over the years with our involvement in The A.C.T., we have been able to give our daughter an experience very different than her normal routine!  She is able to step out of the athletic world and step into something totally different.  She truly epitomizes "her head being in the game but her heart being in the song!" Thanks to your team, our daughter is able to be a part of something very meaningful and fun! For all that you do, a genuine thank you from our family.  She laid her head on the pillow tonight, saying "I miss it already!"  As parents we can ask for anything more!
