Dynamic Productions  •  Award-winning Actor Training  •  Education & Community Programs


From the incredible performances on our stages, to the intensive actor training in our conservatory and our residencies in local San Francisco high schools, A.C.T. strives to nurture the art of live theater that can act as a catalyst for positive change.

A.C.T. is a non-profit theater company, and as such, we depend upon the generosity of individuals to help us fulfill our mission to nurture the art of live theater. Your tax-deductible gift to A.C.T. helps to cultivate the next generation of artists and audiences.
