Since 1999, The Actors Conservatory Theatre has inspired children across North Texas to grow in their love of the performing arts, all while consistently providing audiences with high-quality, community-based children's theatre. Through many seasons, our mission has always remained the same: To foster the education of great classic literature for the young and young at heart, through a dedication to outstanding, all-inclusive, family-oriented theatre, right here in our own community.

Welcome to The ACT!

 

Actors Conservatory Element - Teen Theatre

Actors Conservatory Element - Teen Theatre

ACE Logo Orange.jpg

The Actors Conservatory Element (ACE) is a group of teens who are passionate about the performing arts and who wish to grow as both actors and as technical crew members. Youth ages 12 to 18 who are interested in learning more about theatre are invited to join ACE by participating in any or all of our teen programs during the school year. 

As a young and growing group, our activities and events for ACE continue to expand every season. Here are some of our favorites so far:


Monday Night Improv

Led by Reina Lyons

This sociable, exciting, drop-in class meets throughout the year on various Mondays each month during the school year from 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM, with the goal of improving acting skills through improv games, while enjoying fellowship with other ACT youth.

The cost is $5/session, and participants pay as they arrive. No advance reservation is needed! Please enter through the stage door and we will meet in the greenroom. Please bring exact cash or a check made payable to The ACT.

Here is our full Monday Night Improv Schedule for 2017-2018:

Field Trips

ACE plans at least one theatre-related field trip each semester.  In the past, we have attended improv shows, Scarborough Renaissance Faire, Broadway tours of Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid at the Bass Performance Hall, and An American in Paris at Fair Park Music Hall.

This year, our field trip will be to a performance of Finding Neverland at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth!

Texas Non-Profit Theatres Youth Conference

The 2018 conference will be in Irving, Texas from June 12-17!

Each June, ACE sends a group of teens to the Texas Non-Profit Theatres Youth Conference to learn more about all aspects of theatre.  A four-day event organized exclusively for youth, participants attend improv classes, 6 theatre classes for their age group, shows performed by participating theatres across Texas (including The ACT), and nightly socials with other young people who share a mutual love of theatre.

Some of our TNT attendees may also perform a 40-minute play or musical at the conference. In 2017, this was the musical, Seussical KIDS! The title for the 2018 TNT show will be announced on November 1, 2018. Information on auditions and opportunities for crew positions will be sent later to all registered ACE members, with auditions taking place during the spring semester.  However, conference attendance is open to any ACE member, regardless of involvement in the show.

The cost for the conference varies according to the location, but ranges from $300 - $350, which includes an $80 registration fee per attendee, hotels, gas for transportation to the conference and back, and most meals.  Interested teens are given many opportunities to do fundraising at the ACT throughout the entire year in order to lessen their costs. Each teen who wishes to reduce their cost for the trip must earn 12 fundraising credits during the season to receive a full portion of fundraising, or at least 6 fundraising credits during the season to receive a half portion. Fundraising opportunities for the TNT conference are year-round. More information on TNT Conference Fundraising coming soon!

June 8-11, 2017 (Baytown, Texas)
