Founded in 1972 by legendary producer/director/actor John Houseman and previous Producing Director Margot Harley with members of the first graduating class of Juilliard's Drama Division, The Acting Company has performed 141 productions for over three million people in 48 states and ten foreign countries. The Company has given a generation of actors the opportunity to master their craft. Our education programs — Learning Through Theater Artistic Residencies, Student Matinees, Workshops, Master Classes, Primary Shakespeare and Shakespeare for Teachers — reach students in disadvantaged schools where achievement levels are considerably below average. Response to these programs show renewed interest in learning and improved grades as well as communication and social skills.
