Act 1 Productions

Act 1 is DeSales University’s highly-acclaimed performing arts company and features professional-caliber productions. In addition to our film festivals and choral and dance concerts, the coming theatre season includes an exciting list of plays and musicals.

Final Play of the 17-18 Season
With our last production of the 2017-2018 season, we ventured into the woods with this Tony Award-winning musical bringing the most beloved fairy tales to life.
We have a slate of plays and musicals featuring characters exploring their hearts and attempting to direct the trajectories of their lives. 
  • We open the season with William Inge’s Picnic which explores the complacency of middle age versus the yearnings of youth. 
  • We follow that with the frolicsome Dames at Sea, a rarely-produced and wonderful musical love story about big breaks and big dreams.
  • For Christmas, we’re offering the Pennsylvania premiere of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, a delicious holiday sequel to Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice.
  • In the spring semester, we’ll produce the haunting Chekhov masterpiece The Cherry Orchard.
  • In March, our senior theatre majors will present the delightful and timely The Princess King.
  • Our season finale will explore the search for the extraordinary in the Broadway blockbuster Pippin — another Act 1 premiere. 

We hope you’ll join us!
