Whether it’s a thought-provoking production in our MainStage Series, an awarding winning play in our StageWorks Staged Readings Series, a local experience with our Poets and Playwrights Series, or a wacky night out with our late-night Wild Theater Fun Series, The Acting Ensemble brings the latest and best of what theater 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 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, well-known classics, and classical plays, including Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winners, as well as local, original stories…all in an intimate setting.
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. Our talkbacks are interactive as we learn about each other and ourselves. We believe that theatre has the power to transform us. Join us as we change the world, one story at a time!
