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.


In lieu of having a performance-based ACTFest as in previous years, for this year, on June 4th ACT Manitoba will be holding its "Spring Into Action" - a day of training sessions to bring together member companies from across the Province to liaise, learn and laugh.  There will be workshops, games, and time for conversations about the state of community theatre in Manitoba.  Details may be found under the ACTFEST / This Year's Festival tab on the menu above.


New Link to Primer on Costumes and Historical Dress

Thanks to Cam Stevens - we now have a new link to a wonderful guide on Theater Costumes and Historical Dress from the Lulus.com Fashions website.  Cam and mom Lily emailed us the link that Cam found during his work to earn his Theatre Badge as a Boy Scout.  Check it out under Stage Resources on our SERVICES / THEATRE RESOURCES page on the menu above.


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.
