Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II)

"To serve the young actor, the local schools, and the community with wholesome, educational, and high-quality theatre."

The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) is a non-profit theatre company that brings literature to life through the magic of live performances with wholesome, educational, high-quality productions for the local schools and the community while providing young actors with a safe environment where they can grow in their character and talent.

ACT II: Bringing Literature to Life

All of our plays are based upon literature so that the school children can read the book and learn from it at school, then attend our show and watch the book come alive on stage. Schoolchildren and families attending our shows laugh and cheer as they are immersed in the story.

From plays like “The Lion, Witch, & the Wardrobe” and “A Christmas Carol” to musicals like “Seussical,” “Annie,” and “Beauty and the Beast Jr,” my sons and I have all been blessed to be part of such high-quality, professional production. Not only have we gotten to perform at the beautiful Ent Center, but we have also received top-notch training, made lifelong friends, and served others in the Colorado Springs community.
