About Awesome Children's Theater - A.C.T.

For sixteen years, The Awesome Children's Theater (A.C.T.) has given children a serious theatrical experience in a community theater setting. Funded by Northern Dakota County TriDistrict Community Education Youth Programs, it produces five full-length theatrical productions per year. Children aged eight through fourteen are eligible to participate; as well as acting in the plays, the children are also stagehands and technicians. Parent and High School volunteers help with costuming, set construction, lights and sound. With broad-based community support, A.C.T. brings quality children’s theater to audiences of all ages.

A.C.T. brings to life:

 Fantasy! Literature! Classics! Drama! Comedy! Journeys to Oz!

“All members of ACT are treated like professionals. Our son loves the program because he’s able to be himself in a non-competitive environment, and we like it because we can see his talent and confidence grow with each play.”

--Terri Pieper - parent


“ACT has been a very good experience for my children; it has taught many valuable life lessons, and I would recommend it to all.”

-- Marry Ann Marlow, parent

“There is an infectious energy when you put young performers and their supportive audience in a room together.  A.C.T. combines the enthusiasm of youth with the wisdom of good direction.”

--Heidi Grosch, children’s performer
