Attleboro Community Theatre

Welcome to Attleboro Community Theatre! ACT is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the arts to the city of Attleboro as well as other towns and cities in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Live theatre performances help us to understand the human condition, from laughing together during a comedic scene or letting our tears fall as we empathize with a character's turmoil. It's important for all of us to realize the power of theatre and how it can connect us to each other.

ACT has a handicapped-accessible home at the Ezekiel Bates Masonic Lodge in the heart of Attleboro on 71 North Main Street. We thank Attleboro, as well as our patrons from all of the surrounding communities, for their support over the years and invite you to come join us and be a part of Attleboro Community Theatre. All ages are welcome in our theatre family.

We were founded in 1957 by Hilda Freeman for the purpose of bringing theater to the people of the Attleboros. Hilda shared her love of theatre with us for over seventy years, serving as president of the Attleboro Little Theatre (ACT's former entity) as well as directing numerous plays and assisting the organization in all capacities. Her legacy has left a strong foundation for a theatre that strives to be a part of the community as it offers plays in all genres at reasonable cost to our patrons.

To carry out our work, we are fortunate in having a substantial number of patrons who feel the group is doing something of critical value to the community. We are very grateful for their support, and we are always looking for other community minded citizens in the MA/RI area to join in our effort.
