As we enter our 31st season, ACT 1 continues to be a leader in Nashville’s community theatre scene, presenting both new, original works alongside modern productions.


Our Mission

ACT 1 believes that the most important function of theatre is to describe and comment upon the human condition, to examine the tragedy and comedy of what we are, and perhaps to suggest what we ought to become. Drama which evolves out of this function fulfills the highest purpose of theatre. It provides for the type of meaningful examination that must survive as a major part of theatre.
