The Academy of Children’s Theatre is an amazing company that provides quality art experiences to the youth of Shreveport- Bossier City Louisiana. ACT focuses on musical theatre in which it’s cast and crew is educated on performance techniques, technical theatre skills, team building, creativity, responsibility, and much more! School is proud that its children are a part of this group founded by its director, Cynthia Hawkins – Whitaker and assistant director/choreographer, Lauren Ross, in 2005. Together they have provided instruction and direction to many of our area’s young talents, with the result that a fair number of them have gone on to college with scholarships in voice and theater. Their philosophy is to find a way to let each child shine, and encourage those with the capability to go on to the collegiate level. ACT currently has over 60 students enrolled in classes. You may be familiar with some of its productions in recent years including, Annie, Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz, West Side, Story, Hairspray, Legally Blonde and In the Heights, just to name a few. In addition, ACT has participated and won honors in the Disney Broadway Junior Theater Festival held biannually, and starting in 2010, annually, in Atlanta, Georgia, winning for Outstanding Production in 2003, 2007, and 2009, and Outstanding Choreography in 2005 and 2009. ACT was nationally recognized at this prestigious festival including more than 2,000 of the nation’s finest young performers when it presented the world premier of Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr. in 2007, and showcased Guys and Dolls in 2009.
