Whether it’s a premiere production in our MainStage Series, an awarding winning play in our StageWorks staged readings series, or a thought-provoking drama with our Theatre for Young Audiences plays, The Acting Ensemble Stage Company brings the latest and best of what theatre has to offer.
Come explore our critically acclaimed productions with high-caliber and exceptional talent, all a trademark of the “AE Experience.” And discover for yourself why The Acting Ensemble’s resident acting company has been hailed by the South Bend Tribune as “top tier talent.”
Nothing can be more exciting than seeing an unfamiliar play for the first time. That is why we strive at the Acting Ensemble to bring plays never performed in the area before. Our patrons often comment that one of the reasons they attend our performances is that they never know what to expect, and that they appreciate seeing something different and new.
Now Michiana audiences can experience awarding winning plays by contemporary playwrights, the newest plays, including Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winners, all in their area premieres.
Many of the plays we perform ask our audiences to take a step outside their comfort zone and see the world in a different light, to experience different emotions, to be entertained in new ways. We believe that theatre has the power to transform us.
Our Theatre for Young Audiences series introduces the next generation of theatre audiences to intellectually challenging plays performed by adult actors for young viewers. Written by award winning playwrights, these plays not only entertain but take children on a journey to a whole new level of theatre experience.
