MISSION: ACT is a contemporary theatre where artistic ambition and civic engagement unite. VISION: ACT envisions a world where the power of theatre expands our collective understanding of community and our own humanity. Founded in 1965, ACT was Seattle's first theatre dedicated to producing contemporary plays - and in this commitment, ACT made a unique and essential contribution to Seattle's theatre scene. ACT is dedicated to the creation of New Works and the development of new art. ACT supports these endeavors, critical to our mission, through commissions for new plays, the production of 49 World Premieres in our history, and supporting young art organizations through professional partnerships in our ACTLab. Additionally, our Young Playwrights Program (YPP) provides arts education for young people and encourages the work of young artists.
