Are You Ready To Show Us A Crimes of Passion?
A Pulitzer Prize Winning Drama Written By Beth Henley and Directed By Rocky Shutter
Short Summary: At the core of this tragic comedy, which won the Pulitzer Prize, is a trio of sisters from Mississippi who reunite after the youngest sister shoots her abusive husband. Past resentments bubble to the surface as they’re forced to deal with assorted relatives and past relationships, while coping with the latest incident that has disrupted their lives.
Area Community Theatre is thinking of giving classes in theatre and Improv for children from 8 years to high school ages and adults. We are looking at starting these classes on Aug 29th, on Saturday for approximately 12 weeks, at the Area Community Theatre. The instructors of the classes will be Steve Jones and Rocky Shutter. We would like your feedback letting us know if there is enough interest before we proceed with this project. Please let us know by filling out the form below. Read more!
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.
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 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.
...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
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.

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.
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!
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!
