Amelia Community Theatre is a volunteer, not for profit corporation, chartered by the State of Florida. Auditions and participation are open to all.
We were founded in May of 1981, with eighty-one Charter Members. We currently have over five hundred Season Ticket subscribers; and are in the middle of a Building Campaign to fund a new theatre! Amelia Community Theatre has always enjoyed strong community support and loyal audiences. Over the years, we've gained a reputation for quality entertainment. The Jacksonville press heralds A.C.T.'s efforts as theatre with a "High degree of professionalism" (The News-Leader); and, "Community theatre the way it was meant to be" (The Times Union.)
Productions at A.C.T. include four Main Stage productions (included in the Season Ticket subscription) plus Readers' Theatre, 4-H/ACT Teen Theatre, the Peppermint Players (a touring troupe that performs free shows for children,) Children's Workshops, Melodrama/Vaudeville, and Armchair Actors. Please visit the "History of Shows" page for a complete listing of A.C.T.'s past productions.
