Acting Up Theatre Company

With theatre and a child’s imagination, Acting Up Theatre Company believes that anything is truly possible. Since 1997, Acting Up has been introducing young audiences to theatre in fun, educational ways. Acting Up offers residencies, workshops and original plays for schools, libraries and organizations. Their mission is to give the gift of theatre to those who don’t know what to ask for, to show theatre to those who don’t know where to look and  to introduce theatre to those who have never met with it before. Their residency program is so flexible that it can be customized  into the curriculum of the teacher or administrator’s choice. The Acting Up Theatre Company educates from the stage, on the  stage and beyond the stage to involve, inform and entertain.
