Spring 2020

A note about our spring productions

ACT 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 main stage productions of The Wizard of Oz and Twelfth Night.

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.

Performing July 31 – Aug 2

Directed by Anthony Bruno

It’s time to carry the banner on the ACT stage with Disney’s Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!
