Hosts engage in conversation about ACT’s current season, the MFA conservatory training, ACT development plans, and donors’ ACT experiences thus far. They remain useful assets to ACT's development team by relaying patron's concerns and comments to the rest of the development team.

STORY THEATER (ages 8-10) This two week intensive allows students to explore and stretch their imaginations while learning about the professional roles and responsibilities of working in the theater. Under the guidance of one of A.C.T.'s Master of Fine Arts graduate teaching artists, the students work together to create an original 15-20 minute play. Each student plays a role he/she wants to explore and is assigned a theater role - stage manager, scenic designer, dramaturg, etc. - in which he/she is interested. At the end of the two week intensive, students perform this original piece in front of their friends and family in an open class.
VOICE and SPEECH (ages 11-14) This two week intensive exposes middle school students to two dialects chosen by the instructor - usually one American dialect such as American Southern and one non-American dialect such as Standard British. Students learn the basic sound changes to effectively play a character with a dialect other than their own. They explore the culture of these other dialects in order to more convincingly portray a character with these particular dialects. In addition to the new dialect, students study their own speech patterns and voice to understand that everyone has their own regional and cultural dialect - no one is better than the others - and knowing your own habits can enhance your approach to performing a character. Students perform two monologues in each dialect and present a speech and dialect self-analysis for the class.
