Auditions held for various plays throughout the year.  Alethia Christian Theater (A.C.T.) “ aims to provide young actors with the opportunity to enrich and cultivate their artistic talents and ultimately glorify the One who bestowed them, our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that theater is a culmination of the talents and efforts of all the participants, and thus we place equal importance to all our actors, directors, staff, and parent-volunteers who take part in our productions. We further aim to provide a safe and fun environment for our young thespians to be able to explore their God-given talents. Our approach to training is eclectic and centered around a combination of mastering technique and molding raw talent. Our goal is to tap into the unique abilities of our actors and facilitate their continuing growth in their artistic skills. To this end, we carefully select plays that enrich the learning experience of our actors and impart values of truth to our audience.”
