Entertaining since 1957

Welcome to Attleboro Community Theatre! ACT is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the arts to the city of Attleboro and the surrounding communities of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Live theater helps us to understand the human condition. From laughing together during comedic performances, or letting our tears fall as we empathize with a character's turmoil, we are connected through the power of theater.
