From Cats to Les Miserables, Acting Out has taken on difficult musicals. Our music directors, Ryan Shultz and Alyssa Norden, will take your voice to the next level and enhance your performance for audiences near and far.

3. AOTC is a family


One of the magical things about an Acting Out Theatre Company Show is the sense of belonging and community one feels from being involved. The atmosphere is always welcoming and accepting. When you are involved with AOTC, you become an immediate  member to our ever growing family. The memories you make on the stage will be precious, but the memories you create backstage will last a lifetime.

4. You would enjoy the fresh air


One of the most unique parts of AOTC would be the places in which the shows take place. Outdoor theatre is in a league of its own. There is nothing like performing in an environment that breathes fresh air to a show. Beauty and the Beast will be performed at Perry Farm in Bourbonnais, which is the perfect location to bring this fairy-tale to life.


5. You would help bring a “Tale as Old as Time” to life!


Speaking of bringing shows to life, we need your help to get it done. The team of directors have been working incredibly hard to put this show in motion, but we need driven and hard working actors to create a true masterpiece! Beauty and the Beast is a classic and AOTC is proud to present it to the community.
