“Then I defy you, stars!”

Two households, both alike in dignity

(In fair Verona, where we lay our scene),

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.

This brand new piece devised by the company will utilize Shakespeare’s language as a jumping off point to weave a new tale of youth, love, war, and what ultimately moves us toward healing.

“Grown-ups always need to have things explained to them.”

A world-weary Aviator is stranded in the Sahara where he meets a mysterious, regal “little man.” Over two weeks in the desert, the Little Prince shares his adventures through the galaxy, and the unique insight he’s gained. In the end, both must go home —each with new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love again.

The Secret Garden, Spring Version


A Benefit Concert to Celebrate of 30 Years of ACT

Ages 7-18

Performing June 5, 2021

Directed by TBD

“When a thing is wick, it will grow.”

Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers,” spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

This staged concert version of THE SECRET GARDEN will invite all ACT alumni from throughout our 30 years to join the choir in celebration of the community we have had the honor of cultivating over our history — our very own garden.
