Summer Workshop Productions

Due to COVID-19, we have moved our June camps to the fall and next spring for safety. We are optimistically moving ahead with Guys and Dolls JR, but will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and recommendations closely and will not move forward with any camps or programming unless it is completely safe to do so. All auditions will be virtual and should be submitted no later than April 30. Please see the description below for more info and to schedule your audition.

Act3 Arts Academy offers year-round classes, workshops, and performance opportunities for students K-high school. We strive to inspire a life-long love of theater and to provide aspiring young artists the confidence to make creative choices and express their opinions in ways that foster unity and collaboration.

 Our alumni have gone on to perform on Broadway, in national tours, and locally at The Alliance Theater, The Atlanta Lyric Theatre, Six Flags, and more!  Act3 students have been honored with multiple acting awards at the Junior Theater Festival.  

For more information regarding the academy, contact our Director of Education, Johnna Mitchell.

Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
