      ACT Matching Gift Appeal:

      Help Us Afford Dancing Lessons!

      This is a big deal, folks!  Last month, the Iowa Association of Community Theaters held their biennial Festival in Newton.  As part of the two-day conference, ACT entered a one-act play called Dancing Lessons into a competition with other community theaters in the state.  The sweet and touching drama -- about the relationship between a brilliant autistic professor and a Broadway dancer who fears a leg injury will put an end to her livelihood -- was selected to advance to the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) Regional Competition in Aberdeen, South Dakota at the end of this month. 

      This is a tremendous achievement that, unfortunately, comes at an expense of nearly $4000.  This includes conference registrations, transportation, hotel, meals, etc. for our small cast and crew of five. 

      Faced with a need to raise money, we immediately reached out to a generous member of our ACT family for help.  This donor (who would like to remain anonymous) agreed to match, dollar-for-dollar, the first $750 that we can raise in the next two weeks.  Will you help?

      Want to give via check? Mail to:

      No ticket needed; a goodwill collection will be taken.
