Actors Collaborative Toledo (ACT) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization formed in August 2013. Since that time our company has performed at The Toledo Museum of Art, Trinity Episcopal Church, The Village Players Theatre, The Collingwood Arts Center, The Moxie Live!, Delightful Art with Dee, Owens Community College, The Franciscan Center at Lourdes University, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church and The Center for Performing Arts at the University of Toledo.
ACT is a group of local actors, directors, and playwrights dedicated to bringing contemporary theatre to Toledo, with a focus on the importance of supporting, educating, and empowering young local talent. Through collaborative and fundraising efforts with other nonprofits around town, we are bringing awareness to important social issues through live theatre.
Company members have served as mentors for students at Toledo School for the Arts as they prepared for their senior acting projects. ACT also has collaborated with students from the Drama Society at Lourdes University. ACT has produced benefits for other charitable organizations including: Toledo School for the Arts (4000 Miles), The Zepf Center (‘night, Mother), Equality Toledo (Standing on Ceremony: the Gay Marriage Plays, Mr. Charles; currently of Palm Beach and Gay Shorts), The Perrysburg Chorale (The Christians), the Ella P. Stewart Academy for Girls (Pretty Fire) and most recently Music & Arts at Trinity (The Testament of Mary).
