Act One Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and its mission is to provide children the opportunity to participate and experience performing arts, at no expense to them or their families.

Act One Youth Theater was founded by Lauri Hunter on Jan 2, 2014. Its purpose was to allow children from all income levels to particpate in live theater. She believes that live theater is very instrumental to building a well rounded individual.

Participation in theater teaches young people to be creative thinkers, team players and confident public speakers. They will carry these life skills forward and become very successful in their adult life.
