Sign up here for our weekly email to receive our announcements of classes, auditions, and shows. You can also click “Email List” on the left hand side of the page below the ACT logo.
We also encourage you to audition for shows here and at other theatres around town. It is a great learning experience, even if you can’t commit to a role. You get a chance to watch others and learn from them, and to get up on your feet and try it out. Auditions are a fundamental part of acting, and the more you attend and become comfortable with them, the more you increase your chances of getting in a show, where you can start applying ideas and concepts you learn in classes.
You also may be able to attend a few rehearsals of a show in progress. You can learn from watching the actors make acting choices, seeing the evolution of a character, and hearing the feedback and suggestions from the director. To ask permission to attend a rehearsal and to set up a time to attend, email us.
ACT Theatre Mentorships are learning contracts between someone experienced in a particular theatre-related skill (e.g. directing, stage managing, lighting design, lighting crew, sound design, sound crew, set design/painting/building, costume design and sewing, etc.) and someone who wants to learn more about that skill set. ACT Theatre Mentorships are woven into Main Stage productions. By teaching new people theatre-related skills, we are constantly expanding and improving the community of experienced theatre participants in Anchorage. Contact us.
