The mission of Arlington Children's Theatre is to embrace, enrich, educate and entertain children and their families, within the Boston area, through its commitment to a unique, quality, theatre program.
Established in 1991, Arlington Children's Theatre of Arlington, Massachusetts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating positive theatrical experiences for children aged 7 through 18. ACT is an all-volunteer organization, made up of families who wish to have fun and work hard to bring theater to life. We hire theater professionals to teach our workshops and direct our shows. Each show relies on the participation of adult volunteers involved in every aspect of the production: lighting, costumes, make-up, set construction, set crew, etc.
Participation in an ACT production is open to any child, from any town, who is willing to work with the directors and fellow actors. No prior theatrical experience is required.
For announcements of shows, auditions, workshops and other activities of the ACT, please sign up for our e-mail mailing list.
Contribute to ACT's Annual Fund!
“Near the end, you don't know
what's going to happen, ...
It's the thrill that gets you.”
"ACT is a great theatre company and everyone is so nice here... [It's] a great community of kids and parent volunteers ..."

April is FUNdraising month for ACT!
ACT announces its first Board-Sponsored Pledge Drive as the third and final component of April FUNdraising month. The all-volunteer ACT Board of Directors has agreed to donate $2000 to the organization's annual fund if we can secure 200 additional donations - of any amount - during the month of April.
Please help us out! Reach out to your parents, kids, grandparents, friends, and neighbors and ask them to donate $10, $20, or even more if they can. The amount donated doesn't matter as long as we have 200 donations from 200 different people. You can only donate once, but individual members of the same family can donate separately.
Here's some more information:
Q: How will this gift be acknowledged?
A: These gifts are considered part of your Annual Fund donation and all donations over $10 will be acknowledged in our Summer Season '14 Program. More information on this acknowledgement can be found at the donation link provided above.
Thank you for your support of ACT!
Not Your Average Cause
This April, ACT teams up with Not Your Average Joe's in Arlington Center to help raise money for our organization. Every Tuesday in the month of April, NYAJ will donate 15% of their proceeds of purchases by ACT supporters. Identify yourself as an ACT supporter by bringing this certificate to the restaurant when you dine there. Call your ACT buddies and plan a lunch or an evening out to support ACT. Copy the certificate and give it to friends. April has five Tuesdays, so the big days are the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.
ACT offers many opportunities for kids of all ages to participate in the creation of each show in addition to or in place of acting. It takes all kinds of talents to bring a successful production to the stage. Contact us at: email@example.com to learn more about being a part of creating costumes, sets, props, run crew or ushering.
