Come and enjoy being a part of Alice in her imaginary Wonderland. In this class your homeschooled children will use their imaginations to help write their version of Alice In Wonderland. Then they will perform using their characters and script. It's an amazing learning experience and a fun way to bring their creativity to life.

Congrats to the cast and crew of the Sherlock Holmes Dinner Theatre Show. This was a great show and we are grateful to all who participated in it and to those who came to see it. We also want to thank the Jefferson County Library Foundation for having our actors entertain at their fundraising gala in November. Special thanks goes out to Jo Schantz for the original story inspiration for the Sherlock Holmes dinner show, and to Steve Hostetler for the professional photographs used in the Your Hub Newspaper Article and on the Arvada Press events page. The mutual support between Colorado ACTS and other community organizations, such as the JCPL Foundation, is a truly a blessing and a benefit.

Dear Colorado ACTS Friends and Family,
Please remember to check out our ongoing fundraiser: The Giving Tree.  As you walk in the front door of the theater you will see a large tree with tags noting various needs the theater has (such as cleaning supplies, snacks for concessions, sound equipment and set-building materials).  Your donation of any of these items allows us to keep our tuition low and provide the best possible theater experience for our students and audience members.
There is an area in the Concessions room for returned donations, so please stop by to pick up a tag and then make your donation.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Colorado ACTS.  We are so grateful for this wonderful community.
The Colorado ACTS Team
