Verona Area Community Theater
Verona Area Community Theater, Inc. offers the Verona,
Wisconsin area community opportunities to participate in and enjoy all
facets of community theater. The mission for VACT, Inc. is to support
productions and projects that augment and enhance the artistic experience
for all who participate whether on stage, behind the scenes or in the audience.
These productions are understood to be occasions to refine skills, learn
new ones, and have fun. It is an organization goal to offer affordable
access to theater to the wider community and to provide educational activities
for Verona area residents in all aspects of staging theatrical productions.
Our number one priority is to have fun!

|Follow the Dream...|
|For those of you that may not know, VACT is planning to build a new
"Dream" rehearsal space. As participants of VACT, we wanted to keep you in the loop regarding the "It's Possible...."
building campaign. I have attached a copy of a very nice article written and published by the Verona Press in their
July 3rd edition summarizing the current plans.
We have received very favorable response from the entire Verona Common Council. They have informed us that they
will put us on the Agenda for their August 25th meeting. The two issues they will be discussing further are the
purchase of our current building as well as the most ideal site to offer us. We continue to work on the campaign
and plan for what we hope will be a September rollout.
Please like us on Facebook and watch the website to follow the "Dream" campaign. We will be sending out future
correspondences with ways that you may participate in this very exciting venture.
