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.
- 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!
