On March 18, A.C.T. will host a 50th Anniversary Open House at the Geary Theater. Festivities will include: a behind-the-scenes tour of our historic theater, the opportunity to sit in on a Young Conservatory class, a performance by our Master of Fine Arts Program actors, and a special ice cream flavor from Humphry Slocombe.

In the evening, A.C.T. giants like René Aberjonois and Michael Learned, M.F.A. Program alumni Dan Clegg and Alex Morf, and current M.F.A. Program actors will take part in a reading of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, a play that was directed by A.C.T.’s first Artistic Director William Ball 50 years ago.

The 50th Anniversary Open House and the reading of Under Milk Wood are both free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Click here to reserve tickets through our website.
