About the 2000s
Turmoil and rebirth marked the early 2000’s at ACT, nearly closing their doors during financial crisis in 2003, and then coming back with clarity and precision to close out the decade. 2007 saw the beginning of the Central Heating Lab, which has since become an integral part of the ACT experience.

American legends and lore are the inspiration for this homegrown retelling of Ibsen's poetic masterpiece. Peer Gynt's epic search for fulfillment now takes him on an adventurous journey from the Pacific Northwest to the coast of California during the pioneering 1880s
