(Drum roll please…) Here is the moment for which you have all been eagerly anticipating…biting fingernails…practicing soundtrack numbers…and throwing out random script lines to strangers at Walmart…the Cast Announcement for The Wizard of Oz! (Coming this summer to a stage near you!)
Attention all Wizard of Oz auditioners!!!! We know you have been anxiously awaiting the cast announcement, and we promise that your ACT social media will be the FIRST place to see it; however, we regret that we will not be able to provide the results until after rehearsals later this evening. The good news is that there were so many great auditions, you truly made our job more difficult! (which is a great problem to have.) So please keep watching while we keep deliberating and making our final selection. Thank you for your patience!
Tomah Arts Guild and Area Community Theatre Present
Bards & Ballads
Saturday, March 28 at 7 p.m. the Area Community Theatre will host the latest of the Tomah Arts Guild series, Bards & Ballads, on stage at 970 Kilbourn Ave. in Tomah. This year’s production, described as an evening around the campfire without the bugs and smoke, features The Uke Boys and members of the Black River Writers Guild.
Tomah is very fortunate to have the opportunity for live theatre. ACT is a great facility and a terrific place to take my family to experience this wonderful area of the arts. It’s amazing to me to see all the talent of our local community members. Long live ACT!

Great family entertainment right here in Tomah. My daughter and I haven't been disappointed. She loves it as much as I do and that is a lot for 12 years old!
I love ACT because it gave me the chance to get back on the stage after a 20 year absence. It even let me share that stage with my son while performing in one of my favorite musicals! Thank you ACT!!
I love live theater. Area Community Theatre allows me to see and participate in great shows without having to travel an hour or more. I have attended and helped with ACT shows for more than twenty years. ACT increases the area’s quality of life.
...Everyone is so appreciative and complimentary and recognizes the hard work you put into a production. You do not feel taken for granted at all. All the hours of hard work are recognized by the patrons who attend the shows. It's sooo gratifying! ...Being on that stage is addicting! ACT and it's patrons/ members are like family to ME!! I love being involved and I love volunteering so many hours to ACT because ACT gives back to me what I need. Bridget Owens Owens Chiropractic, Tomah, WI
I always loved theatre. In the theatre I can be or portray almost anyone! Imagination is a great thing. I also love to make people laugh and cry and then laugh again! It’s also a wonderful place to make new friends and meet old acquaintances.
I have been involved with the Area Community Theatre for over twenty-five years. I have enjoyed meeting many new people through ACT and have made many lifetime friends as a result of my involvement. Whether I am acting, directing, selling refreshments, or popping popcorn for our patrons, there is never a dull moment when I am at the theatre. I simply can't imagine my life without being involved with ACT. It has been a very positive experience for me.
I love ACT because I love the Arts, which are Music, Theatre, & Art. ACT & the Cultural Arts Center offer all of theses. I also love ACT because of the people who are committed to giving their time & talents for this theatre. It's offered an opportunity for me to know people I wouldn't have known otherwise.
To me ACT is a group of individuals who volunteer to provide entertainment for our local community. ACT provides an opportunity for people of all ages to make new friends and become a part of productions that family, friends and others get to enjoy. ACT provides an avenue for creativity and will not turn anyone away. Even if you want to be involved but do not want to be on stage there are many other ways to help out. ~Cherie M.
