Actors Collaborative Toledo (ACT) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization formed in August 2013 with the staged reading of "Walter Cronkite is Dead" by Joe Calarco at the historic Mansion View Inn.  Since that time our company has performed at The Toledo Museum of Art, Trinity Episcopal Church, The Village Players Theatre, The Collingwood Arts Center, The Moxie Live!, Delightful Art with Dee, Owens Community College, The Franciscan Center at Lourdes University and The Center for Performing Arts at the University of Toledo.

ACT is a group of local theatre artists dedicated to bringing contemporary theatre to Toledo, with a focus on the importance of supporting, educating, and empowering young local talent. Through collaborative and fundraising efforts with other non­profits around town, we are bringing awareness to important social issues through live theatre.

Company members have served as mentors for local students as they prepared for their senior acting projects, as well as participated in summer day camp programs.   ACT also has collaborated with students from the Drama Society at Lourdes University.   ACT has produced benefits for other charitable organizations including: Music & Arts at Trinity Episcopal Church ("The Testament of Mary"), The Zepf Center ('night, Mother), Equality Toledo (Standing on Ceremony: the Gay Marriage Plays, Mr. Charles; currently of Palm Beach and Gay Shorts), The Perrysburg Chorale (The Christians) and the Ella P. Stewart Academy for Girls (Pretty Fire).
