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
