Rising Above the Challenges

When COVID-19 shut down the country, our spring production (The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr.) was canceled and ACT II lost $50,000 in revenue. That is 40% of our annual income.

Your support through this auction will give ACT II the funding needed to recover from the impact of COVID-19 and rise above the challenges facing the theatre community! With your help, we will continue to bring the magic of theatre to Colorado Springs!

About The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II)

The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) is a nonprofit theatre that serves the young actor, the local schools, and the community with wholesome, educational, high-quality theatre. All of our shows are literature-based so that children can read the book at school within their curriculum and then watch it come to life on stage!

We serve the young actor with a wholesome place to develop their talents and use their gifts to serve the community!

We serve the local schools with educational theatre, and each season over 6,000 school children attend our shows. We subsidize all of the school tickets to make them accessible for students, but there are some schools that can't even afford the lower price. Since we want ALL children to enjoy the benefits of live theatre, we raise support to sponsor Title 1 (low-income) schools to attend our shows. Last year we sponsored 700 students from low-income schools to attend at no cost to them.

We serve the community with a high-quality production at an affordable price so that the whole family can attend together and create special memories. We also have an outreach for families of children with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses by giving them a private show where they can forget about medical treatments and just enjoy the magic.

Your support will help us continue to serve so many in Colorado Springs!
