Artists Collaborative Theatre (ACT) in Elkhorn City is presenting “Once Upon A Mattress” through June 7, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. There will be no show on Saturday June 6.
The announced 2014- 2015 season of ACT included “Chicago”, but four weeks before the opening weekend of the production, the licensing company said it had to pull ACT’s license to perform “Chicago” because of the show’s current success on Broadway.
ACT selected a new show, held emergency auditions, put together a cast, and dove headfirst into a rehearsal process. The cast learned music, blocking, and choreography in record time, while the tech crew designed and built a fairytale castle and constructed Renaissance era costumes for a cast of more than 25 actors.
Tickets are $9 and are available at the door, by calling (606) 422-7333 or online at www.act4.org. Group prices are available for groups more than 15.
