ACT must rely on patron donations for 70% of our operating budget.  Because we are a 501c3 organization your donations are tax deductible, and you will receive receipts for your records.

every $ donated will be DOUBLED!

A dedicated patron of the ACT wishes to assist us in paying off the remaining balance on the mortgage of the building!  The offer consists of a donation match.

Through the efforts of many volunteers, ACT has made 14 years of monthly payments.  The outstanding debt on the mortgage stands just below $200,000.  The benefactor has graciously promised to match all donations up to $100,000!!

Since the COVID virus drastically forced ACT to cancel all shows and fundraisers for over a year and a half, it was a huge struggle to keep the doors open for the future.  Monthly payments on the mortgage limit the opportunities that ACT could present to the area community.  Removing that great burden would help immensely!

Can we count on your generous support at this important time?  Donations of any amount will help us and once again be doubled by the benefactor.  Certain levels of support will include having your name on the beautiful sculpture or plaque in the entry to the theatre, along with a pledge sheet, if necessary, for a larger donation.  Please consider a monetary gift to the theatre and help us BURN OUR MORTGAGE!

$30,000 was raised before the end of 2021.  With the matching benefactor's generous gift, we doubled that fund to $60,000!  Great way to start 2022!

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.
