See what people are saying about the ACT experience.

... Abilene needs ACT. Here’s why.

Abilene is less without community theater. Much less. It’s part of our cultural foundation, as are museums and art galleries.

An ACT that is thriving and respected, not only by playgoers but by actors, would offer more chances for actors and singers and dancers to be on stage — for fun and to improve their craft.

Shakespeare comes to Abilene Community Theatre

By: Adam Singleton - Feb 02, 2018


Abilene Community Theatre is proud to present MEASURE FOR MEASURE, written by William Shakespeare, and directed by Andrea Robison. Performances will be February 8nd thru February 18th on ACT’s Main Stage. MEASURE FOR MEASURE is generously sponsored by the Excelsior Foundation."


She Loves Me! 

“For a smaller theatre, the set is impressive and quite ambitious. There is one central, fixed platform that spins 360 degrees to show the inside and outside of Maraczek’s Parfumerie.

... Advises Liz Berry, chorus member, “The play is a lot of fun. The music is very catchy and engaging – you will leave and find yourself with one or more of the songs stuck in your head.”

Abilene Community Theatre is proud to present A PIECE OF MY HEART, written by Shirley Lauro and directed by Ginger Vinson. Performances will be November 2nd thru November 12th on ACT’s Main Stage.

A PIECE OF MY HEART is a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation.

Great job, cast and crew of Steel Magnolias; loved your opening night performance!
