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 ..."

Advertising and Sponsorship
Advertising in an ACT program, or sponsorship of a show or season, is an effective way to promote your business to families within the Boston area. By purchasing an ad or sponsorship you are also making a valuable contribution to the local community and helping to provide an affordable, unique and high quality theatre program for children ages 7–18. Contact Elizabeth Cutler at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to confirm your ad or sponsorship.
During an ungraceful migration between servers, we became separated from our database and, along with it, records of registrations between March 4th and March 16th. Our ISP has promised us access to recent backups, but cannot tell us when that will be.
If you registered your child for one of our programs around those dates, please revisit the registration page and follow the instructions there so we can confirm your registration.

Looking for Gift Cards
If you have gift cards that you don't plan to use — don’t let them go to waste! Drop them off at ACT in Matt's office at any time and they will be put to great use in ACT raffles.
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.
