Over 20 years ago, in June 1990, two deeply spiritual and incredibly talented
friends, Kathleen R. Sutter & Mary C. Weisenburger, realized their dream of writing, staging, and producing
their original musical masterpiece based on the biblical book of Acts. “acts, the musical” opened on the stage
at St. John the Baptist School Gymnasium in Alden, NY on Friday, June 1, 1990, to standing room only audiences. When the show
closed 6 weeks later, after 6 performances in 4 different locations including the historic Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda,
the bond of friendship and community formed among the cast and crew of over 40 members was so strong that they committed to
making it a way of life – and the Alden Christian Theatre Society was born. We now have an active membership of close
to 100 members, and ACTS stages 5 full-scale productions each year. In addition, the all-volunteer organization offers live
entertainment and other cultural opportunities for the community in our permanent home at 1470 Church Street. Through the
tireless efforts of its volunteers, ACTS proudly continues its mission of Serving Through the Performing Arts.
Volunteers are always needed! In addition to actors, crew, and production staff, we
also need help with publicity, hanging posters, organizing fundraisers, working in the coffeehouse, taking tickets...the opportunities
are endless! We have a lot of work to do, but we have a lot of fun doing it, and we invite you to join us! Members can sign
up at any of our events or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
