ACT has begun a Festivals Endowment which will continue to assure ACT’s participation in the American Association of Community Theatre’s festival process in the future.

advocates for and supports community theaters across America.

WHAT IS AACTFest? Every two years, AACT holds a festival cycle. The cycle begins when each state holds its AACT state festival. The top show advances to their regional festival. There are 10 regions, including an armed service region. Each region sends one show to the national festival.

Our Festival Endowment fund is managed such that a portion of the interest can be invested back into ACT productions entering this or any other festival that our board of directors see fit to send an ACT production.

These gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.

ACT has placed first or second in every state festival since our first entry in 1980.
