Educational and Outreach Activities

In addition to theatrical enterprises, The American Century Theater is dedicated to serving the community in a variety of ways. Drastically reduced group rates are available for senior citizens, students and non-profit organizations. Subtext, our periodic newsletter, contains historical, critical, and analytical features about each production (e-mail us for free subscription); Audience Guides are prepared for each production; post-show discussions are held for selected productions with directors, designers and actors.


Because The American Century Theater strives to create theatrical experiences that entire families can watch, enjoy and discuss long afterward, and because we believe that theater should be available to the entire commuity, maintaining affordable ticket prices is a major objective. Tickets cost $26-29, $23 for students and seniors. . Reduced group rates are also available. Subscribers pay only $104 to $188 for a five-show season, with free admittance to staged readings.

TACT is also the area's only professional theater that admits all children free of charge with a paying adult. We are determined to make theater-going a family affair again, one that you don't have to be wealthy to enjoy. Please take advantage of this unique benefit, and tell your friends.

TACT is supported in part by Arlington County through the Arlington Commission for the Arts and Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development; the Virginia Commission for the Arts; the National Endowment for the Arts; and many generous donors.
