Acta enables people to see theatre in a different way, specifically targeting non theatre- goers from the least engaged sections of the community, as well as introducing quality community theatre to existing theatre audiences. We make theatre which connects to these audiences, theatre which is relevant to, and reflective of, their culture and life experiences.

This connection is only achievable with a devising practice that allows the natural voice of participants to resonate through every performance. Participants use their own experiences and imaginations, their own words to connect with audiences and to create remarkable theatre.

Over the last three years acta has created 47 original new shows, and engaged well over 2,000 participants and almost 10,000 audience members.

acta has significantly increased its audience numbers, with more shows selling out and two thirds of audiences new to our work. The company is rapidly developing a new audience for theatre.

acta is one of the UK’s leading Community Theatres, highly respected both nationally and internationally’
