Vacation Day Programs

NoteACT has been closely monitoring developments around COVID-19 and has looked to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and federal agencies such as the Center for Disease Control for recommendations, guidance, and direction. Given Governor Baker’s recent extension of the ban on public gatherings of ten or more until May 4, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our spring programming, including our April Vacation Day Program.

For those who have already paid for registration, we will be issuing full refunds in the coming days. We appreciate your patience as we process the large volume of refunds across the span of our spring programs. If you have already paid for registration and would like to apply that payment to any summer programming your ACTor may be registered for, just let us know, and we will gladly reallocate your payment.

We are working with our guest artists and educators to create alternative online programming made specifically for our spring program participants so that we may continue to engage and learn as best we can during this time. Please stay tuned for further details in the coming days.

ACT is excited to offer another theatre filled vacation day program. Building on the success of previous programs this week long educational and theatrical experience will be led by our Theatre and Education Apprentices who are high school and college students or early career professionals. The week will focus on the theatrical process and culminate in a sharing of work/performance on Friday evening. This is sure to be an exciting and fun-filled week for all involved.

The program will run 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday at ACT, 115 Massachusetts Ave, Arlington, MA.

Please note that payment is due in full at registration. Payment is fully refundable before January 16th, and 75% refundable through February 1st. No refunds are possible after February 1st.
