The Arcadians’ Children’s Theatre (ACT) began in 1985. It was born out of the idea that there were enough children of Arcadians members coming to rehearsals, that perhaps they should have a show of their own.
Under the Direction of Lillian Bates the first show was put on in 1985 and the children’s theatre has blossomed ever since. Other Directors include, Susie (Brown) Hamers, Wendy Glover, Geoff Markham and today ACT is under the Direction of Janne-Maree McNeice.
ACT started by putting on a concert which then grew to one show a year performed at the IPAC and today 25 years later, we perform two shows a year at our own home the Miner’s Lamp Theatre.
