VACT was founded in 1992 by Dee Baldock with the goal of providing affordable opportunities for children and adults to engage and enhance their passions in all facets of theater. Since then, the organization has grown to provide a strong sense of community and many memorable experiences. 

People of all abilities and skill levels, ranging in age from 5 to 75 years old, have found a home at VACT. Everyone is welcome to participate and finances are never a barrier. The cost to participate in a VACT production is never more than $20 per person, including costumes. Participants receive approximately 50 hours of high-quality instruction and performance time. 

VACT performs the majority of their shows in the Verona Area High School Performing Arts Center. Productions are complete with professional quality sets, costumes, sound and lighting. 

VACT offers six to eight full length productions a season. At least five of the productions feature children. Paid attendance has grown from a total of 290 patrons in 1992 to over 8,600 in 2014.

As the organization continues to grow, our number one priority will always remain the same: to have fun!
