ACT Staged Readings

Presented once each year, the ACT Staged Reading provides a forum for advanced students to take on more challenging works in the intimate atmosphere of reader’s theatre. The cast is small and the budget is minimal, but the benefit to individual student actors is immense! The annual reading is also a benefit for the ACT scholarship fund, which provides the opportunity for all students to participate in classes and shows, no matter their family’s financial background.
