I have been going to ACT shows for years & I tell everyone I can about them. Their productions are fabulous, often better then the Broadway productions. With a very small stage & with lots of love, dedication & talent you are transported to times gone by, foreign places or down memory lane. It is always a joy to see an ACT play, they offer top-notch theater to the community.

I became a volunteer at the suggestion of a friend who has appeared in several productions. I was immediately welcomed as part of the "family." The actors of all ages are dedicated, talented, enthusiastic,and very professional. The productions appeal to all ages.

Actors Conservatory Theater (Wenar Productions, Ltd.) is one of the best kept secrets on the planet. That is one of their biggest problems. They are not well known. Their volunteers, board members, etc., are top notch. My mother who is 94 has a hart time hearing and seeing. ACT always reserves a front row seat for her. Their productions could rivel any off Broadway production. I would say any Broadway production, but the small stage size and size of the theater makes their comparison closer to off Broadway. ALL of the shows I have seen have been excellent. Value is tops! For a little more than the cost of a MOVIE, one can experience LIVE theater. And when combined with their dinner package, the value can't be beat. Their only drawback is not having their own theater. While the church meets their needs now, the seating leaves a lot to be desired. If you are not in the first few rows, your view of the stage is limited. Hopefully this campaign will let the public in on this "secret" and they will achieve the means for getting a little theater of their own.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy its own theater, offer scholarships, have many more productions a year, and pay their hardworking staff

Ways to make it better...

they had handicap access. I would like to take my husand to the productions, however a long set of steps to get into the theatre and lack of handicap access makes it impossible very limited by stairs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting more publicity about the kinds of productions they produce.

Actors Conservatory Theatre is like a second home to so many people. I commute from Connecticut three times a week just so I can participate in this amazing program. The people there are overwhelmingly nice, welcoming, and new actors or volunteers are always encouraged to join the ACT family. I look forward to being in the annual junior show each year and there is no cost to participate in it. I am overjoyed to have found this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being able to learn about theater in a professional environment and participate in great productions.

Actors Conservatory Theatre (Wenar Productions, Ltd.) is one of the most enduring arts organizations in the greater NY area. They have done so by being organized by a small group of dedicated volunteers who have consistently given their time, energy, and skills for many – in some cases, over 30 – years. They have kept costs low, and their offerings varied, so their performances have been accessible to audiences with broad needs and interests. Their junior troupe affords young people an incredible opportunity to work with people with professional-level skills WITHOUT charging a fee. They have kept their ticket prices affordable while other theatre companies at comparable levels have raised theirs. They have survived 2 recessions, being without a home theatre, and very limited public funding beyond ticket sales. They have survived in spite of the marginalization of the arts in our society for the past 30+ years. Their audiences have been loyal in spite of the fact that, out of necessity, ACT’s productions have been presented in nearly half dozen venues in as many towns throughout Westchester county. Actors Conservatory Theatre is an example of the best of non-profit organizations. It is deserving of much praise and support.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I've been able to see amazing theatre right in my own community at an affordable price. I've been able to bring my entire family to their children's shows. What they do is all good.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

When I helped this organization, I sat on their Board of directors, performed in their plays. I volunteered to help with tasks related to the production of shows. I loved the community spirit, the people, and the experienced stewardship.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The board members, people who direct the shows and choreograph the shows, people who volunteer to help in the theatre before, during and after productions. These were enthusiastic (mostly) volunteers who make an important contribution and have fun.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

..purchase their own theatre, where they could store their own sets, costumes and lighting. They could offer more programs for kids, they could offer free theatre to the community, and they could provide consultation to other community theatre groups.
