ACT OF CONNECTICUT
Experience the best of Broadway without leaving your backyard! In just two seasons, ACT of Connecticut has become one of the most well-known and highly respected regional theatres in our area. To date, we have presented and produced “Mamma Mia!”, “Evita”, “Working”, "Austen’s Pride”, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”, “Little Shop of Horrors”, and “Godspell”. In our inaugural season, we were honored with 11 Broadway World Connecticut Awards (including Equity Theatre Of The Year), and have constantly made several “Top Ten” and “Best of Connecticut” lists, and even garnered a favorable mention in the New York Times.
