Drop by a bit early, and take advantage of concessions and a donation beer/wine bar before the show (or BYOB).

December 4-20 - The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on! This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple! Features plenty of enjoyment for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!

$15 ($12 for members).

An ACT Special Event.
Jan 22-24:      Edge of Knight Presents: Elements of Danger

Prepare thyself for merriment and wonder as Edge of Knight Medieval Theatre Company transports you to the 15th century with their interactive and family friendly sword fighting and stunt show, "Elements of Danger". The Art Centre Theatre has lowered its drawbridge and summons you to behold this magical production of Shakespearean comedy, dangerous weaponry stunts, illusion, juggling, and the medieval art forms of fire eating, sword swallowing, poi artistry, and medieval dance. The original script and powerful soundtrack are enhanced by authentic weapons, spectacular stage props, stunning costumes, and cutting edge special effects. The level of danger in their stunts, the number of stunts and skills performed in a single show, and the fact only family members perform all stunts and skills make them the only sword fighting and stunt show of their kind in existence. To learn more about the show, meet the players, and view their photo gallery, visit You won't want to miss this amazing performance!
