About Us : The Beginnings of ACTS 


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 actsinfo1990@yahoo.com.
