Actors Community Theatre

A Brief History

In January of 2000, at the request of the Davie Town Council, an ad appeared in the Town's local paper asking if there are, "Any thespians out there?" A number of people responded and became the nucleus for the Town's first community theatre.

A core group of eight men and women began rehearsing scenes from internationally famous plays, with the intent of eventually putting on a performance.

On October 20 and 21, 2000, the production of "An Evening of Scenes: The Passion of Tennessee Williams, The Laughter of Neil Simon" was presented at Robbin's Lodge before an appreciative audience. After this initial venture, a Board of Governors was elected and the Actors Community Theatre of Davie was born.
