Theatre for everyone, made by kids.

AECT Mainstage productions are cancelled through the summer. We are incredibly sorry to miss out on your excellent work, but for the sake of health and safety during COVID-19 we are putting our efforts into preparations for the coming year.

At this time we are planning on offering shows for the 32nd season starting in the Fall of 2020. We will keep our members updated as information comes to light.

Please see the City of East Lansing website for information and registration for Virtual Summer Camps.

Please sign up for our quarterly newsletter for information about upcoming productions and board activity including fundraising.

Our Sponsors

We would like to thank our sponsors and community granting agencies for their support for AECT programming and operations.


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.
