Act 1 Productions

A highly-acclaimed performing arts company featuring plays, musicals, children’s theatre, dance concerts, and film festivals.

Act 1 is the producing arm of the DeSales University Division of Performing Arts.  We encourage our students to bring truth and beauty to the world through their art forms in Theatre, Dance and TV/Film.

We invite you to join us in our celebration of truth and beauty in our production of plays, musicals, children’s theatre,  dance concerts, and film festivals. Most of our productions can be seen either in person or streamed* —  call or email our box office for your tickets and your preference.

The DeSales TV/Film students have been instrumental in filming these productions to deliver them in a virtual format. In addition, the Act 1 faculty and guest directors and designers continue to enjoy the challenge of discovering new ways to design sets, costumes, lighting, and sound for both social distancing and filmed live productions.
