About Our Productions

ACT performs shows appropriate for all ages as well as those oriented toward more mature audiences. If you have any questions about the content of one of our productions please contact us.

Wheelchair-accessible seating is available. Be advised that in some of our shows strobe lighting, fog machines, and similar special effects may be used.

Our shows are original productions by ACT staff and students unless otherwise noted.

Tickets

Tickets may be purchased online or at the ACT box office. Tickets are non-refundable. Exchanges are allowed for a different performance of a production. Seats may not be exchanged from one production to another.. ACT reserves the right to cancel a performance if there are less than 25 tickets sold. Member discounts are valid only for online purchases and not at the door.

Armed Forces, PISD, City of Plano, and Hotel Discount Tickets at the Door:
Patrons and the employees of the fabulous Plano hotels and motels are entitled to a 10% discount off any tickets purchased at the door; show a receipt or current pay stub. (Receipts must be dated within 15 days of the show date.)

PISD Teachers, Plano Fire-fighters and Law-enforcement officers, City Of Plano employees, and members of the armed forces receive a 10% discount at the door with proper ID.

KERA Members

KERA members can receive a two-for-one discount at the door for non-special event shows! Look up the show date and time, note your desired seats from those available, and e-mail boxoffice@artcentretheatre.com with your request so we can hold your reservation; you may pay at the door when you show your KERA membership card.

Online Ticketing

Through our online ticketing system, you can reserve your seats, print your tickets and pay with a credit card. Tickets are not available online one hour before the performance.

Our community theatre relies on our cast members to spread the word and sell tickets to their shows - contact your favorite cast member before purchase as there may be a discount available, and also be sure to specify their name when you purchase the ticket.

Even if you leave your tickets at home, your name will be on the door list. We will be waiting for you!

Should you encounter difficulty completing your purchase online please send an e-mail to boxoffice@artcentretheatre.com. Be sure to include your name and phone number as well as the performance in which you're interested. You will be contacted via phone for your credit card information to complete the purchase. Do not include your credit card information in the e-mail.

Common Issues:

Discount code not accepted - shows are occasionally offered with a special cast discount code. If you have been provided a discount code you must purchase the tickets one week before the show opens (an incentive to purchase your tickets early!).

Could not print a receipt - Check the e-mail that you used when registering with the ticketing system - a copy of the tickets are sent to that address. You can log back into the ticketing system and reprint your receipt and tickets. We will have your reservation at the door, so you can just bring ID and you will be good to go.

The system keeps erroring off - common errors are from the credit card expiration date format - it should be entered 'mmyy'. Some cards are now giving an exact day, please use only the month and year.

    Girls' Weekend

    In this lightning-quick farce, four women travel to Dot’s Northwoods cabin to consume copious amounts of wine, laugh at their lives, trade stories and chat about their book club’s latest selection. However, after the third case of wine comes through the door, it becomes clear there will be more stewing than reviewing. Carol, who is monitoring her temperature for the best “window of opportunity” to get pregnant, gets a ride to the cabin from her husband, Rick, who is hoping the “time is right” for a quick tryst. She sends him home, frustrated, in a snowstorm, only to discover that her temperature shows she IS ready and calls him to drive back and hide out in a shed until she can sneak him in with a special porchlight signal.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream

    On a Midsummer’s night, four young people find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

    The Sound of Music

    Based on the true story of the Von Trapp Family Singers. The Sound of Music tells the tale of Maria Rainer, whose free spirit has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of Nonnberg Abbey. Commissioned by the Mother Abbess to serve as the governess. Maria transforms the Von Trapp family home from a place of dour rules and regulations to one filled with joy, with laughter, and with music. In the process, Maria wins the hearts of all seven children--and their widower father, Captain Von Trapp. With the Mother Abbess’ blessing, and to the children’s delight, Maria follows her heart, and Maria and the Captain marry. Upon returning home from their honeymoon, Maria and the Captain learn that their beloved Austria has been taken over by the Nazis, and the retired Captain is asked to report for immediate service in the Nazi Navy. When the Nazis show up at their door to take Captain Von Trapp away, it is a family singing engagement that buys the family time to make their narrow escape. Their Austrian convictions compel Maria, the Captain, and the children to flee over the mountains of Switzerland to safety.

    Monty Python's Spamalot

    Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevvy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevvy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs.

    Side Show

    Based on the true story of conjoined twins and famed entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one’s uniqueness. As the starring act of a sideshow, helmed by an abusive ringmaster, Violet and Daisy Hilton are eager to accept an offer of fame, fortune, and potential romance proffered by Terry, a talent scout, and Buddy, a budding musician. As stars on the Orpheum Circuit, it seems that Violet and Daisy have everything they ever wanted. The one thing they lack, however, is the fulfillment of their hearts’ desires. Different as they are, when it comes to matters of the heart, Daisy and Violet have the same burning questions: “Who could proudly stand beside me? Who will love me as I am?” Nearly entirely sung-through, Side Show features soulful music, stunningly beautiful lyrics, and powerhouse show-stoppers, particularly the famous duets “Who Will Love Me as I Am” and “I Will Never Leave You.” A stunning reminder of the importance of accepting and celebrating what makes us unique, Side Show is a true story that will touch the audience’s hearts.
