About Us

ACT1 Theater is a community theater and an outreach of Alpharetta Presbyterian Church (APC) in Alpharetta, GA. Through the use of drama we strive to provide fellowship and entertainment to our community. The productions we choose to perform are typically not theological works, but rather those that you would find in most community theaters. We do, however, focus on those that would be appropriate in a Christian environment.

ACT1 Theater is a non-equity, all-volunteer, no fee (paid or collected for actors) theater with a 25+ year history providing quality entertainment.

Some of our cast and crew come from the congregation at APC, but that’s certainly not a requirement. We warmly welcome other members of the community with a love for theater. Auditions are open to anyone who would like to join us. Casting decisions are always made in the best interests of the production; church members are never given preference. We are not theologically trained and, while we would love to have you join us in worship or other APC activity, that’s not the focus of our ministry. We hope you will enjoy the fellowship, whether in the audience, on the stage or participating in the many unseen but important activities that go on behind the scenes.
