Foundational Principles

Since 1964, Anacortes Community Theatre (ACT) has served the Anacortes community and the wider Skagit Valley by presenting consistent and high-quality live performances on our main stage and in smaller productions. 

Our broader mission and wide community support has allowed us to also serve our community through many other avenues of service, including our incredible year-round Class ACT education program.

Anacortes Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that truly celebrates live community theatre in every performance.

ACT is not a repertory, regional, or private theatre organizationanyone can be a part of our organization, so come and be ACT-er today!

Join us!  

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our community theatre.  ACT is always in need of excited new volunteers!  

Would you like to volunteer in some aspect of the theatre?  Even if you have no experience at all, we’d love to have you!

We need a little bit of everything: from set builders, painters, and lighting designers / technicians, to costumers, hair dressers, and make-up artists, as well as actors, production team members, and Front of House ushers—all of the people who make the “magic” happen behind the scenes.
