Acta community theatre in Bedminster has been extended, remodelled and refurbished to provide an enlarged foyer with a bar, kitchen and Studio with backstage spaces and a mezzanine operating platform.
Acta is an educational charity which has been transforming lives through community theatre since 1985. They work with hundreds of people without privilege every year, helping people to build confidence, make friends, have fun and feel valued.
The remodelled part of the existing building includes a new mezzanine costume store, and a more functional layout on the ground floor.
Over the last three years acta has created 47 original new shows, and engaged well over 2,000 participants and almost 10,000 audience members.
‘acta is one of the UK’s leading Community Theatres, highly respected both nationally and internationally’
