The A.C.T. Conservatory

A.C.T. seeks to develop the artist in every actor. We cultivate educated men and women of the theater with a critical sense who will energize and advance performance in America. Our training prepares actors to succeed in all aspects of the profession, but our primary goal is to prepare artists for a lifelong investment in the theater. Click here to learn more.
