Alsager Community Theatre (ACT) was founded in 1973. Our current aim is to produce at least 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.

Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay
Alsager Civic (10th to 17th March 2019)
Brian Ormrod will be directing a production of Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay by Dario Fo
Written in the crisis-hit atmosphere of 1970s Italy, this hilarious and critically acclaimed farce centres on direct action by housewives against inflationary supermarket prices and struggles with their Communist trade unionist husbands who face unemployment and worse!
I was at the final audition yesterday and joined in reading part of the play. It is absolutely hilarious, and is going to be so much fun to do! Four of the five parts are cast, but we still need an actress for a main part who should appear to be between the ages of 18 and 40. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Brian on 07956 173761.
If you know anyone who may be interested, please pass this information on to them.
