Located in the heart of downtown Seattle and serving a population of curious, open-minded, and brave audiences, ACT is the only local theatre dedicated to producing contemporary work with promising playwrights and local performing artists since 1965. We are a destination for contemporary theatre and arts in downtown Seattle and a cultural engine that makes plays, dance, music, and film that touch us. Because contemporary life demands examination, ACT is driven to inspire and strengthen our diverse community through works that advance our understanding of human life. We are an interactive community where artists and the public witness, contemplate and engage in dialogue on todays thought-provoking issues, ideas and art, presented with intelligence, insight, and humor.
To support and raise the quality of life in our civilization.
