If you have an interest in participating in this small, very creative theater company, we would love to meet you. We have a place for dedicated people who are interested in being a Director, House Manager, Stage Manager, Costumer, or handle Public Relations (press releases, website, FaceBook), or Finance. OR...if you just have some time and some muscle, you would be an asset in setting up! We may be small, but it takes many people to make a production happen!

Some photos from our Gathering

Thanks to all who joined us at our Gathering at the Oldest Store Museum in Uptown on September 13, 2018. We had a wonderful turnout for this event and met some new friends and re-connected with our great old friends and supporters. A great way to kick off our exciting new season!

Our deep gratitude to Dave Chatterton for giving us a wonderful space to hold our season kickoff! Thanks Dave...You're the best and your crew (in the person of Stephen Mitchell) is pretty terrific, too!


Auditions for ACT’s production of Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire will be held on Sunday October 14 at 1pm and Friday October 19 at 6:30 pm in Unit #105 at Portman Plaza, located at 2085 A1A South, St. Augustine Beach. Actors are requested to bring a photo and resume.  Director Deborah Dickey will have actors read scenes from the script.  Actors with prepared monologues are welcome. The production will have six performances at the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center on Feb. 22-24 and Mar. 1-3, 2019.  A few rehearsals will be scheduled before the holidays, and a full schedule will begin in January.


A Classic Theatre presents this wonderfully, heartfelt production of RIPCORD in its St. Augustine Premiere. It is the tale of two roommates who should not be in the same state, much less the same room! Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, has created a play of high-stakes hilarity and has said, “Once the play started to take shape, I realized that I was writing something that was harkening back to some of the great comedies about two characters of a certain age really going at it with each other. Those plays are really funny, but what I loved about them was that they were incredibly human. They had big throbbing hearts in the middle of them.”  RIPCORD draws you in as each character tries to rip the other to bits, and then invites the audience, and anyone who experiences this story, to embrace the idea of being present and joyful, because life is going to end whether you like it or not.


This ensemble piece requires six versatile actors, some of whom will take on multiple roles including:

Abby Binder: (60’s-70’s) sarcastic, intelligent, prefers reading, and to be left alone!

Marilyn Dunne: (60’s-70’s) friendly, active, cheery, prefers Sudoku, and social activity!

Scotty: (30’s-40’s) a resident aide who keeps the peace

Benjamin: (30’s-40’s) a long lost relative (multiple roles)

Colleen: (30’s-40’s) Marilyn’s daughter (multiple roles)

Derek: (30’s-40’s) Marilyn’s son-in-law (multiple roles)


 The New York Times calls RIPCORD “An expertly engineered comedy!” and Deadline calls it “vastly entertaining… a show to treasure.”
