Alternate College Theatre production of “Clue”

Alternate College Theatre is the only fully student-run theater group on campus and offers the opportunity to direct, perform, design, produce, stage-manage, or work within any other production aspect of theatre!

Alternate College Theatre’s mission is to create a positive community space where Holy Cross students, no matter their theatrical experience, can be exposed to all aspects of theatre through hands-on technical and artistic opportunities. ACT strives to create an environment that encourages professional and personal growth through application, communication, accountability, and collaboration. ACT is committed to treating all people, in and outside of the ACT & Holy Cross communities, with respect, equity, inclusion, and justice.

ACT hosts a season kick-off pizza party each September and produces both a straight play in the fall and a musical in the spring under the auspices of the Department of Theatre and Dance. ACT also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including but not limited to Midnight Theatre, Cabaret Nights, Improv Nights, and Master Classes. Club members vote on the following season’s shows each May; election of board members and production teams for the upcoming year are also made during the spring semester.
