ACT Manitoba is a provincially funded, volunteer organization, registered as a Canadian Charity, with a mandate to support amateur theatre and amateur performing arts in Manitoba.

Membership is open to all amateur theatre groups in Manitoba and member groups benefit from access to services; funding for theatre development and training; and participation in provincially-offered activities and the annual provincial performing arts festival ACTFEST.

ACTFest 2024

It is with regret that the ACT Board has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s ACTFest 2024, that was to be held in Gimli at the end of May.   Several factors beyond our control and a lack of critical mass to make it a true festival, has led to this decision. In the coming weeks, expect a survey from your Regional Representative, to determine the details of an event your company would like to participate in and how ACT Manitoba can make this happen. It’s all so very disappointing….but maybe a bit exciting because together we can reimagine something different and more relevant.   If you have any concerns please contact your regional rep or Alice Young, ACT President. Thanks for your support.

ACT MB Common Forms and Documents - NEW MENU OPTION

As previously posted, the Board adopted Dropbox as it’s primary archival system for storing copies of all of ACT’s electronic documents.  By maintaining and accessing the documents online, the Board hopes to eliminate carrying and distributing binders of information and years of archival documents, while still providing the most recent versions of items to those that need them.  You can now view the folder of documents under the SERVICES / FORMS & DOCUMENTS tab on the menu above or the previously provided link at ACT MB Common Forms & Documents.
