Asheville Community Theatre, located in the heart of downtown Asheville, has a history of artistic excellence that continues as we stride into our 59th season. Voted “Best Theatre Group in Western North Carolina” numerous times by readers of both the Asheville Citizen-Times and Mountain Xpress, ACT remains an institution committed to providing quality entertainment for a reasonable price.
While best known for our large-scale musicals, ACT also offers classic comedies and dramas, contemporary pieces, and children’s theatre productions in our 399 seat Mainstage auditorium. Our second performance space is 35below, an intimate black box theater which produces smaller, unconventional works, music and cabaret performances, and play readings of new and local pieces. We offer a variety of classes for both youth and adult students, and plenty of volunteer opportunities for anyone interested in helping out. ACT is truly a community theatre, and we invite all to join us!
