Alsager Community Theatre (ACT) was founded in 1973. Our current aim is to produce two plays a year, one in our home base in the Alsager Civic and one, courtesy of the National Trust, at Little Moreton Hall.
During the past 44 years, we have gained a reputation for acclaimed productions of Shakespeare and other classics, as well as having a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2004 with Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood.
Welcome to our new website, which is still under construction. More will be added in the coming weeks.
Our Summer Production is nearly over!
National Trust property Little Moreton Hall once again hosts a production by award-winning local amateur company, Alsager Community Theatre. This month, ACT stages an adaptation of Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy, As You Like It, in the courtyard of this beautiful Elizabethan Hall (or in a marquee there if the weather is wet). There are a (very) few tickets left for the performance on Friday 21 July and Saturday 22 July’s performance is SOLD OUT!
Tickets are GBP14 (GBP10 for under 21s), and they can be obtained by phoning the box office on 01260 276165.

News of auditions for a November production of Yes, Prime Minister
Are you an experienced amateur actor on the look out for a new challenge? Or have you never acted before but find the idea appealing? Following their joyous outdoor production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It at Little Moreton Hall in July, Alsager Community Theatre is moving indoors for a production of Yes, Prime Minister, by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn which will take place at a venue in Alsager.
The stage version of Yes, Prime Minister brings back all the classic characters from the original television series and some brand-new ones. Together they are plunged into a hilarious and progressively more ridiculous situation which may be resolved with a false passport, a TV broadcast and lots of drinkies.
With politics a heavy topic at the moment this play is set to bring some much needed comic relief. Yes, Prime Minister is being performed in November, and ACT is looking for men and women of all ages to bring the production to life.
Everyone is welcome to attend ACT's auditions which take place on Wednesday 9 August and on Monday 14 August from 7.45pm at Alsager Library. Rehearsals begin early September. For more information, or if you are interested but cannot make those audition dates, please phone the play’s director James Tomkinson on 07957 727817.
