ACT INC DEDICATES ITS 2016 SEASON TO DOROTHY FARMER DAVIS

 

How many theater companies can say that a founding member was still on the board and active after more than 30 years?

 

ACT INC can.

 

Dorothy Farmer Davis first appeared in Dangerous Corner in 1979, and last appeared in Waiting in the Wings in 2009. To list the shows she was in would be listing most of our production history. Watching her perform was pure joy; performing with her was pure delight.

 

Dorothy’s health began to fail in 2010, and she passed away in December. Her request was that upon her death, contributions be made to ACT INC in her honor.

 

We trust that you find her wish, to support the company that was such a large part of her life for decades, a worthy one.

 

Thank you for considering this.

 

Contributions made out to ACT INC can be mailed to:

ACT INC named Lindenwood's Resident Summer Repertory Company

St. Louis’ Oldest Summer Repertory Theatre
A Professional Non-Equity Company


PRESS RELEASE FOR ACT INC, A MISSOURI NOT-FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION

ACT INC is pleased to announce that they are Lindenwood University’s Resident Summer Repertory Company.

They will present their 35th season of Summer Repertory Theater in the Emerson Black Box Theater at the J. Scheidegger Center on Lindenwood’s St. Charles Campus. ACT INC is the first professional-non-equity company to perform in St. Charles. Founded in 1979 by a group of non-equity actors who realized there was little summer theater in St. Louis except the Muny, they sought to present the lesser known works of well known playwrights, or plays that are rarely produced.

ACT INC specializes in period plays by  playwrights including G.B. Shaw, J.M. Barrie, Oscar Wilde, and Somerset Maugham. Appealing to nostalgia with the slogan “When you’re looking forward to looking back’, the company often presents the shows audiences haven’t seen since their high school or college days.
