AECT is a 501c3 Nonprofit organization that enables children’s theatre programming. We cast kids in all our shows, and kids make up our crews as well. That’s right, kids act, sing, direct, light, design and build sets, design and apply stage makeup, costumes, props, usher, and more.

We make this happen by bringing in expert mentors to teach and guide children from all walks of life to create excellent live theatre productions.
